In this tender and funny novel, award-winning author Hilma Wolitzer mines the unpredictable fallout of suddenly becoming single later in life, and the chaos and joys of falling in love the second time around. When Edward Schuyler, a modest and bookish sixty-two-year-old science teacher, is widowed, he finds himself ambushed by female attention. There are plenty of unattached women around, but a healthy, handsome, available man is a rare and desirable creature. Edward receives phone calls from widows seeking love, or at least lunch, while well-meaning friends try to set him up at dinner parties. Even an attractive married neighbor offers herself to him. The problem is that Edward doesn’t feel available. He’s still mourning his beloved wife, Bee, and prefers solitude and the familiar routine of work, gardening, and bird-watching. But then his stepchildren surprise him by placing a personal ad in The New York Review of Books on his behalf. Soon the letters flood in, and Edward is torn between his loyalty to Bee’s memory and his growing longing for connection. Gradually, reluctantly, he begins dating (“dating after death,” as one correspondent puts it), and his encounters are variously startling, comical, and sad. Just when Edward thinks he has the game figured out, a chance meeting proves that love always arrives when it’s least expected. With wit, warmth, and a keen understanding of the heart, An Available Man explores aspects of loneliness and togetherness, and the difference in the options open to men and women of a certain age. Most of all, the novel celebrates the endurance of love, and its thrilling capacity to bloom anew. Look for special features inside.

Wolitzer is a champ at the closely observed, droll novel of manners.”—NPR “[Hilma Wolitzer is an] American literary treasure.”—The Boston Globe “A deeply satisfying story of love lost and found.”—Bookreporter

These people exist among us, who have a gift of 38 availABLE Man and God.
Author: MOSES E. ASIEGBU
Have you ever wondered why God manifests Himself uniquely and mightily through some few individuals? The reason you see today like in Bible days an individual leading thousands or millions of people in a gathering/movement to the glory of God. God is with them and confirms His words with signs and wonders. These individuals 'avail' (submit) themselves, conscious that it's not about them because it's extraordinary but with the reverential and worshipful fear of God they'll show that God is 'Able'. The world then experiences God through them as 'avail-Able', a living God, ever present, all knowing and most powerful. The Author, Moses E. Asiegbu in this book, availABLE man and God, unveils by divine unction truths on your possible manifestation. The sequence is your submission, process (formation) and finally manifestation to the glory of the Most High God. It has nothing to do with your face, place or race. Just say "Yes Lord, let it be to me according to your will." Read; become blessed to be a blessing.
