Oh no! A decade birthday is approaching, one with a big “0” in it, and he’s losing it. Marvin Baines seemingly has it all: a loving family and a great job. He is about to turn forty, and just like that, the realization hits him–his own mortality is straight up the road. That’s not his only problem. Suddenly he is unable to distinguish fantasy from reality, and his often quirky decision-making causes his whole life to begin to unravel. All he wants is an escape from his humdrum life. What he gets is something quite unexpected.
“The humour is well-judged and never forced, and overall The Survival of Marvin Baines is a highly recommended tale of mid-life dysfunction.” – Indie Book Spot
“This book will stick with you like a healthy meal leaving you feeling pleased with yourself for eating, savoring, and thinking…” – Karen Luellen. author
