Mourning Wood: a novel (Paperback)

Mourning Wood: a novel By Daniel Paisner Cover Image
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


The world is too much with Terence Wood, a fading Hollywood icon who stages his own death and seeks to live anonymously in a Maine coastal town, while his aspiring filmmaker son, his variously unhinged ex-wives and the hack obituary writer hired to complete his "posthumous" memoir set off in search of Wood's legacy. A caustic tale of love and death and lobster roll that asks the reader to re-imagine what it means to leave a mark and to live a life that matters.

About the Author

DANIEL PAISNER is well-known to readers as the author of more than sixty books, including sixteen New York Times best-sellers. As a ghostwriter, he has written more than fifty books in collaboration with athletes, actors, politicians, business leaders and ordinary individuals with extraordinary stories to tell, including tennis great Serena Williams; Ohio governor John Kasich; football legend Ray Lewis; Academy Award winners Whoopi Goldberg, Denzel Washington and Anthony Quinn; and former New York Mets pitcher Ron Darling. His baseball-themed novel A SINGLE HAPPENED THING was published in April, 2016 by Relegation Books—the third "first novel" from Paisner, who prefers the enthusiasm and benefits-of-the-doubt that attach to first-time novelists over the grudging disinterest that seems to greet mid-list writers upon publication.
