With The Good Body, Bill Gaston emerges as a singular new voice in fiction -- an insightful chronicler of the confusions of contemporary manhood. At the novel's center is Bobby "Loose" Bonaduce, a hockey player who left his young family years ago for a professional career. With the prospect of retirement before him, Bobby is compelled to reach out to the son he abandoned, fast-talking his way into a graduate seminar at the school where Jason is an undergrad. But Bobby is also -- unbeknownst to his family -- struggling with an insidious disease that promises to rob him of the one. thing that never let him down: his body. Bobby's attempts to navigate the no-man's-land of his failed marriage, to fashion a rough kind of bond with his son, and to learn to trust the truths of his heart in place of the waning force in his body -- The Good Body weaves all these threads into a funny, never sentimental, but deeply moving story that may remind readers of the work of Richard Russo, Frederick Exley, or even the young John Updike.
