He tells his story with a lot of humor and sorrow. Inspired by Norm, Zack boldly attempts to make some changes of his own, and the results are instantly calamitous. Can it be attributed to one event, or was it a gradual process that would have happened no matter what?
And the writing is powerful enough to have you laughing at one moment, then wiping away a tear, the next. Jonahan a once in a lifetime chance to learn the truth.
Sure, I can point to flaws in this book, particularly Mary Sue style wish fulfillment. Viagra-popping Egerything becomes increasingly cartoonish as the novel unfolds, and the triangle material is chhanges, but pithy observations on love, marriage and corporate life give the book a graceful charm.
And Susheela, it turns out, is in even more trouble than Magda.
Zack stops going to work, spends more and more time with Rael’s widow, and could possibly have cancer. Few writers hold my attention that well. Claire and Matt are divorced but decide what’s best for their daughter Scarlett is to have a ‘normal’ family Christmas with them all together.
Before it’s too late. You wouldn’t hug me the way we hug, and say the things you say to me. Bad tempered and elderly, Magda does not need changrs from anyone, despite being wheelchair bound. But Jo has never found love herself. Traumatic childhood experiences and Norm, his largely absent father, resurface, a tragedy leaves him and close friends struggling with elements of grief, and a health scare, a job he hates, and confusion about love add to the mix.
He uses the English language well.
Published March 28th by Bantam first published March 29th Tropper knows his strengths and plays to them in every novel. Then Norm – Zack’s freewheeling, Viagra-popping father – resurfaces after a twenty-year absence, looking to make amends.
This one had a couple of lulls in the storyline compared to his others, so it’s getting 4 stars instead of 5, but I still absolutely adored it.

The strongest part of this novel is friendship. Each one has moments of hilarity and poignancy.
Everything Changes is narrated by Zack King, who is going through a sort-of mini mid-life crisis when a health scare forces him to evaluate his life. Zack and his younger brother Matt distrust their father but their other brother, who is mentally handicapped, is overjoyed to see him. I’ve yet to be disappointed, and that’s puts jonaghan above the fray.
This being my second foray into the writings of Jonathan Tropper the everythinb being How to Talk to a Widower I continue to be impressed by his writing. Christa, an only child, longs to break free from the constraints of London suburbia, and fantasises about the ethereal Belgian heroine who saved her father. Quotes from Everything Changes.
