Here's the set-up:

It isn't until Donald Roth meets his son's future in-laws that he realizes he is tired of a three-speed life. Time to move up.

When Donald was a kid in the late 60's on the South Side of Chicago, he had a Schwinn Sting Ray bike. Everyone did. But everyone else had a five-speed. Donald's was a three-speed. It was good enough, as was explained by his parents, just as their Ford Maverick wasn't the neighbor's Le Mans, but it was good enough. And that's the way Donald was taught to live his life. It was a three-speed life. It was good enough. 

He marries Emily because she's good enough. Emily marries Donald because that's what she had planned, and she is not going to experience divorce as did her parents. Donald opens a law practice with his two best friends and roommates from college because it's good enough.

Then the Roths meet their son's future in-laws and everything changes. 

Donald wonders if, in fact, he could get that five-speed.

In this hilarious and thought-provoking novel, the whole concept of morals and convention is turned inside out. Everything is perception. If you like Richard Russo, Tom Perotta, and Jonathan Franzen, you're going to love this book.

The Reviewers Said:

Growing up the 1960s, and in Chicago, I could not stop smiling as I read Mr.Warady's wonderfully engaging novel about life, love, and the funny things that happen along the way. 

This is a must read for all Baby boomers!

Written with both amazing humor and yet thoughtful characterizations, this fast moving novel is aptly named.

Charley Warady is a master of dialogue--there is no wasted energy, it reads down-hill (which is something that I always look for in what I read).

This very funny novel is a real delight--Charley Warady is a GREAT story teller and it's a GREAT story.
