Abstract:

For more than a decade, Linc Menner has raised the status of househusband to an art form. ... While his wife, Jo, brings home the bacon, Linc Menner holds down the fort-his gourmet cooking is sublime, his cleaning unrivaled, and his devotion to his daughter, Violet, unparalleled. But when the Menners relocate from upstate New York to the steamy beaches of Naples, Florida, life takes an unexpected turn. As the Menners renovate their new home Linc's bliss turns into a war zone of contractors, dry wall dust, and chaos. And suddenly being surrounded by guys whose faces go blank as he expounds on the virtues of lump-free gravy makes Linc realize he has forgotten what it feels like to be a man. So Linc trades his flip-flops for work boots, and his wild mop of hair for a barbershop buzz, and marches his flabby physique to the nearest gym-attracting the secret devotion of one of Violet's teacher in the process. And his stunned family watches helplessly as they lose the man who keeps them all together. To make matters worse, it's hurricane season and there's a category 5 heading right for Naples. As life on the home front explodes into hilarity and catastrophe, Linc must chart his own delightfully crooked course to finally become the Man of the House.
