Wallace Webster lives alone in Kemah, Texas, at Forgetful Bay, a condo development where residents are passing away at an alarming rate. As he monitors events in the neighborhood, Wallace keeps in touch with his ex-wife, his grown daughter, a former coworker for whom he has much-averted eyes, and a somewhat exotic resident with whom he commences an offbeat affair that begins with his being locked in an Airstream trailer attached to the roof of her restaurant. He sifts through the curious accidents that plague his neighbors, all the while reflecting on his past and shortening future. Required to ponder his own mortality, he wonders if "settling for" something less than he aspired to is a kind of cowardice, or just good sense.

Sometimes, the quirky characters are really what makes a good novel--and I love these characters!
In a way, reading this novel was a bit like watching the Bruce Campbell film Bubba Ho-Tep. Narrator Wallace Webster reminds me of the Elvis character there, sometimes laconic and philosophical. Great cast of characters, but any mystery element is sort of "lite."
