From screenwriter and Lake Effect contributor Tom Matthews comes Raising the Dad, a high-concept and surprisingly funny novel about a man who must cope with his troubled family after learning a devastating secret.

John Husted’s life is complicated, although not in any remarkable way. His marriage has slipped into a state of passionless functionality. His teenage daughter is growing distant and mean. His older brother—a washed-up heavy-metal singer—is fresh out of jail, and his mother is slipping away to dementia.

And then an incredible secret about the family is forced upon John. By the time he finds a way to resolve the situation as best he can, the relationships within his family are changed forever in shocking and profoundly moving ways.

Tom Matthews wrote the Costa-Gavras film Mad City, starring Dustin Hoffman and John Travolta. His satirical novel Like We Care was published in 2004 to great acclaim. His work as a feature writer and commentator has been published in Milwaukee Magazine, Creative Screenwriting, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Baltimore Sun, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and other publications. He is an essayist on Milwaukee Public Radio’s Lake Effect.
