A novel by Daniel Wallace
Edsel Bronfman works as a junior executive shipping clerk for an importer of flatware. He lives in a seedy neighborhood and spends his free time with his spirited mother.
Exciting things happen to other people, and Bronfman knows it. Until, that is, he gets a call from Carla D’Angelo, an operator at Extraordinary Adventures, telling him that he’s won a free weekend at a beachfront condo in Destin, Florida.
But, there’s a catch. The offer is intended for a couple, and Bronfman has only 79 days to find someone to take with him. The phone call jolts Bronfman into motion, initiating a series of adventures as he looks for a companion for his weekend getaway. Open at last to the possibilities of life, Bronfman now believes that anything can happen, and it does.
