Tom Violet always thought that by the time he turned thirty-five, hed have everything going for him. Fame. Fortune. A beautiful wife. A satisfying career as a successful novelist. A happy dog to greet him at the end of the day.
The reality, though, is far different. Hes got a wife, but their problems are bigger than he can even imagine. And hes written a novel, but the manuscript hes slaved over for years is currently hidden in his desk drawer while his father, an actual famous writer, just won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. His career, such that it is, involves mind-numbing corporate buzzwords, his pretentious archnemesis Gregory, and a hopeless, completely inappropriate crush on his favorite coworker. Oh . . . and his dog, according to the vet, is suffering from acute anxiety.
Toms life is crushing his soul, but hes decided to do something about it. (Really.) Domestic Violets is the brilliant and beguiling story of a man finally taking control of his own happinesseven if it means making a complete idiot of himself along the way.
