“A tour filled with moments of grace and angst, and an overwhelming sense that compassion matters.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune
Arthur Camden’s greatest talents are for packing and unpacking suitcases, making coleslaw, and second-guessing every decision in his life. When his business fails and his wife leaves him—to pursue more aggressive men—Arthur finds that he has none of the talents and finesse that everyone else seems to possess for navigating New York society.
About the Author
Praise For A Gentleman's Guide to Graceful Living: A Novel…
Charming. . . . Mr. Dahlie’s debut novel takes a surprising tack. It deals quite affectionately with its central character and his frailties.
Dahlie’s dry and understated portrayal of old upper-crust Manhattan is as crisp and authentic as a well-made gin and tonic.
