Stockbroker Jay Jarvis just moved East. His dating life's gone South. What else is a guy to do but go fishing? "Refreshingly honest . . . as charming as Bridget Jones' Diary from the male point of view. Highly recommended."--Library Journal "A fun, lighthearted, and thoroughly enjoyable 'relational gumbo' of a novel."--CCM magazine "This is one book you don't want to miss!"--Crossings Book Club "Blackston's light and breezy style makes ideal reading for a lazy summer night."--Bookpage "An amusing look at the Christian singles scene."--Romantic Times "Amazing. A novel with no illicit sex, bad words, racial slurs, or crime that is simultaneously serious, hilarious, and impossible to put down."--The Dallas Morning News Armed with the knowledge that his second grade teacher always liked his stories and poems, Ray Blackston walked away from the corporate cubicle, bought a laptop, said a prayer, and began typing the first words of Flabbergasted. He does not recommend this method for the faint of heart.
Ray Blackston of Greenville, South Carolina, worked as a buyer and a broker for eleven years before cashing in his modest 401k and leaving his corporate cubicle to write full time. He serves on the missions committee of Grace Church, has traveled to rural Ecuador on a summer missions program, and coaches his six-year-old nephew Action Jackson in T-ball.See all Product Description

Read this book as a fun summer roadtrip story, or open the treasure chest of clever prose, lush imagery, and valuable life lessons. Either way, you can't lose.Published on March 22 2004
I liked the fresh angle of this book. Imagine this... a book from a man's perspective with almost no reference to sex or violence. Read morePublished on Jan. 23 2004 by Joanna Webb
