Two Like Me And You by Chad Alan Gibbs (30)

Paperback: 298 pagesPublisher: Borne Back Books (March 4, 2019)ISBN: 9780985716530
AMAZON
Edwin Green's ex-girlfriend is famous. We're talking cover-of-every-tabloid-in-the-grocery-store-line famous. She dumped Edwin one year ago on what he refers to as Black Saturday, and in hopes of winning her back, he's spent the last twelve months trying to become famous himself. It hasn't gone well.
But when a history class assignment pairs Edwin with Parker Haddaway, the mysterious new girl at school, she introduces him to Garland Lenox, the nursing-home-bound World War II veteran who will change Edwin's life forever. 

The three escape to France, in search of the old man's long-lost love, and as word of their hilarious adventure spreads, they become media darlings. But when things fall apart, they also become the focus of French authorities. In a race against time, who will find love, and who will only find more heartache?

Wilson #Movie

AVAILABLE NOW!
RATED R

Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged wife (Laura Dern) and gets a shot at happiness when he learns he has a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he has never met. In his uniquely outrageous and slightly twisted way, he sets out to connect with her.

REVIEW: How did I not know about this film before now?!
It was funny, in parts. Woody Harrelson, as Wilson, was a sarcastic jerk but in a funny way not offensive. He really goes through the ringer in life and love. His neurotic ways have him clinging to the one new thing he has. A daughter he didn't know about.
It really is heartwarming in ways too. He may be quirky, weird even, but he so longs to make it right with his daughter.
The ending is a bit of a soft moment too. Those tender moments make a great way to end it all though.
I think anyone who watches this will enjoy it. It will surprise you in ways too. Was it a bl…

This award winning 6000 word short story, originally published in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, features Konrath's stalwart Homicide cop Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels (Whiskey Sour, Shaken) in a puzzler of a mystery.
