In Thank You, Goodnight, hailed by Billboard as "High Fidelity and About a Boy with a dose of Music & Lyrics thrown in," the lead singer of a one-hit wonder 90s band tries for one more swing at the fence.Teddy Tremble is nearing forty and has settled into a comfortable groove, working at a stuffy law firm and living in a downtown apartment with a woman he thinks he might love. Sure, his days aren't as exciting as the time he spent as the lead singer of Tremble, the rock band known for its mega-hit "It Feels Like a Lie," but that life has long since passed its sell-by date. But when Teddy gets a cryptic call from an old friend, he's catapulted into contemplating the unthinkable: reuniting Tremble for one last shot at rewriting history. Never mind that the band members haven't spoken in ten years, that they left the music scene in a blazing cloud of indifference, and that the only fans who seem to miss them reside in an obscure little town in Switzerland. If Teddy manages to snooker his band mates out of their adult lives, can a once immature, self-involved fallen idol find his way back to the top—and possibly back to the one who got away? Thank You, Goodnight is debut novelist Andy Abramowitz's hilarious, honest, and "unfailingly heartfelt" (The Washington Post) story about love, lyrics, and finding one's legacy in the unlikeliest of places.

Booklist review is spot-on. I love discovering gems such as this book. It deserves a much wider audience than it seems to be getting.

From our 2015 #80DayRead Summer Reading Club traveler Justina: One of the best books I've ever read. I got so into these characters. When is the author writing another book?

Can a one-hit wonder band make a comeback 20 years later? The narrator and once-lead singer, Teddy Tremble, is the least likable character in the book, but there are some funny one-liners and it's a good send-up of the music industry.
