Henry DeareBook - 2012
Can a depressed optometrist trapped in a corner of a Bay Area Wal-Mart, living with his overbearing mother ever gain his emotional freedom and possibly find love? HENRY DEAR answers just such a question as it chronicles the account of a middle-aged man struggling to win his independence from his mother in a sometimes funny, sometimes poignant psychological battle of wills. When Henry invites Alhaum, a captivating Iranian-born single mother of Santi, a teenage miscreant, and six-year-old Tao, a musical prodigy to live in the house as roommates, the conflict between Henry and his mother escalates to mammoth proportions. Lives are shattered after a car accident, and Henry must fight to conquer his inner sense of guilt, rising above familial expectations and a haunting past if he is to reclaim his life.
