Description - Jamesland by Michelle Huneven

Jamesland , the buoyant second novel by Michelle Huneven, critically acclaimed author of Round Rock , is a witty, sophisticated, and deeply humane comedy of unlikely redemption. When thirty-three-year-old Alice Black discovers a deer in her dining room after fighting with her boyfriend, she wonders if she s going crazy. Pete Ross, forty-six, knows he s crazy. He s wrecked his marriage, slashed his wrists, and done time in a psychiatric institution, and now he's being cared for by his mother, who s a nun. Forty-five-year-old Helen Harland, a spirited Unitarian Universalist minister, is being driven crazy by her hostile church administration. Living in Los Feliz, California, the three meet at Helen s Wednesday midweek services. Though initially incompatible, the sheer force of Helen s idiosyncratic ministering (her variety show of religious experience ) paired with Alice s illustrious ancestor William James proves to be a catalyst for friendship and a kind of transcendence. Generous and compassionate, Michelle Huneven delivers a joyful new novel about love, faith, and a few wayward souls waiting for life to begin. "
