"A hard-drinking man. A dented Harley. A detour to an unexpected future."

Professor Lawrence Tyrone didn't have a drinking problem―or an obsession with his ex-wife―until he discovered she was marrying his brother. When crashing the wedding with disastrous results leaves him divorced for a second time, unemployed and close to rock bottom, Tyrone moves to the country, buys a Harley, and starts taking riding lessons from a secretive Polish expat.

Isolated out in the country, far from his usual haunts and routines, Tyrone gets caught up in the lives of several unpredictable characters―his neighbors and their Labrador dog (who has a mind of her own), his street-smart riding instructor, a rebellious young girl, a gambler, and a medical resident caught in a love triangle.

Meddling in other people's lives forces Tyrone to confront his own failings. For the first time in his life he wants to be a different man, but there's that lifetime of bad habits and bad behavior to overcome.... 

The Unexpected Journeys of Lawrence Tyrone is a quixotic, inspiring misadventure with an eccentric assortment of characters.
