To Rise Again at a Decent Hour, a Novel by Joshua Ferris
Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Joshua Ferris discusses his new novel, To Rise Again at a Decent Hour. It’s about Paul O'Rourke, a dentist made of contradictions: he loves the world, but doesn't know how to live in it and he’s an atheist not quite willing to let go of God. When someone begins to impersonate Paul online, and he watches in horror as a website, a Facebook page, and a Twitter account are created in his name, he realizes that the online "Paul" might be a better version of the real thing.
