Meet Burt Hecker: he's a mead-addicted medieval re-enactor from upstate New York who prefers oat gruel to French fries—because potatoes were unavailable in Europe before 1200 A.D.—and is mourning the death of his wife. After an incident involving the police and an illegally borrowed car, Burt is forced to join a local music therapy workshop to manage his anger. With this group, he travels to Germany for a music festival. His real goal, however, is to get to Prague, where his estranged son has been living. Armed with what he thinks is a historically accurate understanding of how to fix the past, Burt sets out on a journey that will change his future.

    " Good. But sad. Very sad. "

    " I like the characters, and I like the book, but it wasn't quite as funny or as moving as I'd hoped. Still, Burt's foibles, flaws, and general freakiness are entertaining. A quick, enjoyable read. "

    " I always fall for the lousy guys... not necessarily the big bad wolf just those pathetic no good can't help themselves type. maybe because i'd think those are the faults that i can imagine i'd do as well. well, this guy is one of them though he's also funny in a dry sort of way. it's those small comments or opinions he throws out once in a while that makes his sorry story feels entertaining. only, somehow... i'm thinking maybe this book is too short. i was still trying to picture how his n his wife's life together, and i just couldn't. we know he has done unforgivable thing on her dying days to his family, we know how they met, but despite the whole length of the book dedicated to rumination of it, i still feel there's a gap there, i just couldn't imagine it; i can't imagine what kind of person his wife was. i especially didn't get that bit that was being kept a secret by the mother in law, really not working for me in establishing her character.

    " Excellent book. Manages to be very funny and sad at the same time with cooky characters who have staying power. No easy feat, great debut. "
