One American Robin
One American Robin | E.A. Mann
Robin is a lonely, whip-smart twenty-five-year-old muddling her way through a rough summer. Her fathers losing his mind to dementia. He also might be falling in love, which is nice, but it has Robin wondering: is it adultery if you cant remember you have a wife?

Then theres Corey, her mysterious neighbor who works on his house all day, every day. When Robin finally meets him, she sees an attractive lifeline into a new phase in her life. But how well does she know Corey really? Why doesnt he ever leave his house?

As summer bleeds into fall, Robin answers these questions while juggling familial fissures, money problems, and a fruitless quest to capture her fathers rapidly deteriorating memories. Set in Providence, Rhode Island during the worst recession in generations, One American Robin is a funny and heartbreaking examination of love, dementia, and the life-changing power of home improvement.

This is a first novel by @Eamann It is not an easy read, as it deals with dementia, dysfunctional families, and mental illness. I am horrible at writing reviews, but I hope this author writes more books. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I'll admit I was worried as I read this, because I worried the author would read my blurb (he's a Litten), and I didn't really like Robin much. And if I didn't like the person the story is about, then what do I say about it... I kept going, though, and really found myself loving who Robin became, as you'll discover if you read it. It was unexpected, and that, perhaps, was what I enjoyed most of all.

#LitsyAtoZ @BookishMarginalia @Eamann

It was over 80 yesterday, and pollen was everywhere, including between the ornamental braiding on my shoes, so despite the prediction of prolonged winter, I say it's SPRING!

And this book jacket is a perfect representation of exactly that. In my mind, anyway.

I'm going in!

This #recommendsday I'm finally posting my overdue review of this terrific book. There is such good writing here and Robin's story is captivating, funny, honest and poignant with a bit of mystery and adventure thrown in for good measure. Best is Robin herself who feels so real—a friend you laugh with, root for, argue with and care about in the way that only happens with the best characters. In short, JUST READ IT PEOPLE! You won't regret it.

One of the benefits of having my book on Amazon is the free access to deep insights that only Big Data can provide. Apparently my readers are obsessed with small toilets. Based on this, I've diverted my entire advertising budget to parenting magazines and small-toilet hobbyist blogs.

Author @Eamann is on Litsy, which is how I discovered (and downloaded on my own volition) One American Robin. Lots of great metaphors such as the one I highlighted above, which regards her father who has dementia. Without giving the ending away, I liked how Robin discovered her inner strength to forge ahead in life -- no clichéd ending here. ?

I loved it—just a really beautiful and unexpected story. And I think it's been emphasized that Mann did a phenomenal job of writing a female MC who is both likable and real. I'm not typically a highlighter of fiction, but there were so many unexpected & transportive metaphors that gave me pause without removing me from the story. So good! Brilliant work and I highly recommend!

"I never had less than three books going at once, using them the way a climber uses multiple carabiners to stay clipped onto the mountain. Finishing a book, for me, is a small death, and it's important to have a second one going to combat the feeling of loss when it ends."

This was a beautiful but heartbreaking novel! Meet Robin and her dementia-ridden father, her quirky home-improvement-obsessed neighbor, and her often-dysfunctional family. Throw in humor, pathos, and a great storyline and you may stay up all night to finish it! Plus, I appreciate a man who can write from a woman's perspective as we're pretty complicated and hard to figure out. Rock on @Eamann !

Sad, funny and redemptive without being sentimental, One American Robin suggests that there are times when people, like houses, are in desperate need of repair—and it reminds us that that's okay. We are only human, after all. This is a fast, engaging read, peppered with dry, witty insights and observations alongside solemn, earnest truths. Robin's voice is distinct and memorable.

Well done, @Eamann !

Each individual's life story can be engaging, both familiar and surprising, if you take time to listen. I felt this authenticity many times, reading Mann's debut novel.
Robin is not so different from any of us, but the unique details of her story drew me in.
I loved reading as she muddled through and dealt with issues that impact all our "normal" lives: aging, regrets, circumstances beyond our control, awkwardness, fumbling, and even resilience.

When you're finishing a book you read through it so many times that the words start to lose meaning - either that or you start secretly hating it. So it's nice to come across a passage and still think 'hey, this isn't bad!'
