Book Overview
Long Way From Home is the first novel from Emmy Award-winning writer Lenny Shulman. Follow the exploits of wise-cracking New York author Dan Henry as he lurches forward from unemployed writer to host of a TV sports talk show--with help and hindrance from his brilliant, sex-addicted attorney, and from a murky, mysterious source who feeds him inside information. Dan hits his stride with the job and a beautiful girlfriend, actually achieving status and success. To the surprise of no one, none of it lasts. When the TV deal and his life blow up, Dan strikes off on his own again 1,000 miles away. Despite losing the job that took him halfway across the country, Dan finds his voice. Throwing himself into the story of a lifetime, Dan uses every tool in his arsenal to expose a plot that threatens the life of the most famous racehorse in America as it competes in the Kentucky Derby. In doing so, he brings some familiar villains to justice. Against all odds, Dan becomes a hero. Long Way From Home weaves relentless humor through waves of friendship, betrayal, and redemption. It is comedy of a most serious nature.
