Know Your Beholder

A Novel

by Adam Rapp

Audiobook (Includes supplementary content)

1 of 1 copy available

From a Pulitzer Prize finalist comes a hilarious and heartbreaking novel about a musician climbing back from rock bottom.

As winter deepens in Pollard, Illinois, thirtysomething Francis Falbo is holed up in an attic apartment while recovering from a series of traumas—his mother's death, his beloved wife's desertion, and his once-ascendant rock band's irreconcilable breakup. He hasn't changed out of his bathrobe—the uniform of a life in default—for nine days. All he has left is his childhood home, whose remaining rooms he rents to a cast of eccentric tenants. Francis becomes increasingly entangled in their lives, with results that are disastrous, hysterical, and ultimately healing.

Know Your Beholder is an uproarious and affecting novel about what we do when our lives have crumbled around us and we must collect the jagged pieces to begin anew. Seldom have our foibles and our efforts to persevere in spite of them been laid bare with such heart and hope.
