Praise

"The Handyman proves once again that Carolyn See is one of this generation’s most talented and versatile writers."
–FANNIE FLAGG

"IRRESISTIBLE . . . A SPARKLING ENTERTAINMENT."
–Entertainment Weekly

"BEGUILING, CHARMING, WITTY, INSPIRING–Carolyn See’s novel The Handyman is so wonderful in so many ways that it’s going to seem as if her mother wrote every review for it. Twenty-eight-year-old Bob Hampton is a struggling artist who is panicking at the possibility that he will never find his authentic ‘voice.’ After a failed (and endearing) trip to Paris, Bob returns to his home in Los Angeles and decides to spend the summer working as a handyman before giving art school one more try. What he becomes, of course, is a handyman of the heart."
–The Cleveland Plain Dealer

"[AN] INVENTIVE AND ENERGETIC STORY . . . See offers a satisfying take on the mysterious and unpredictable ways that real life can be turned into art."
–People
