(From the publisher):
One year and six days into an unsatisfactory retirement, Howard Woods is awakened by his wife in the early hours of the morning to hear the news of a decades-old betrayal. He does not take it well. Howard updends his well-ordered life and, to the dismay of his family, announces hisintention of traveling to Spain to join the annual running of the bulls in Pamplona. Having thrown his life into chaos, Howard finds that his wife is no longer willing to restore it to order, as she always has done in the past. He is now miserably committed to a Hemingway-inspired course of his own choosing but with little idea of how to change it or achieve the resolution he desires. Instead of at home where he wishes to be, he ends up living at the Holiday Inn. How does a middle-aged man of the Eisenhower era survive in the age of cell phones and cable TV?
