Jim Hawthorne is in love, but he doesn’t know with whom. He thinks he has settled a difficult case for a beastly client he detests, but Jim has no reason to think that. He knows he should get ready for the Key West trial that looms should his settlement fall apart, but he drinks instead, constructs elaborate fantasies about ex-girlfriends, and invites another client, Otto Lowell, a hapless saboteur who may or may not be Jim’s friend, along for the ride. With obstacles flying at him, many of his own creation, Jim begins the systematic, ever-accelerating unraveling of his life...
Until, once in Key West, he hits the gas. Thick in the middle of the steamy Hemingway Days festival, where alcohol never stops flowing and the streets are full of shabbily clothed free spirits, local Conchs, sunburned tourists, and crass Hemingway look-alikes, Jim absorbs into a sea of perversity and manic love. He has no time, and even less desire, for work—until work engulfs him in a trial he has no idea how to defend. When his defense spins into a bizarre, wildly impertinent play for the affections of a blonde Government investigator who hates Jim’s client almost as much as he does, Jim faces a stunning fate.
West, the raucous, funny, often shocking, debut of Joe Z. King, tells the hard-charging tale of a lawyer caught between his fading sense of professionalism and his uncontrollable impulses. Flying toward ruin, Jim must save himself before the purposeful dismantling of his life becomes permanent.

LIFELONG GROUCH Obidyjha (O-bə-dī-yə) Grumbles lives up to his name every chance he gets. He grouses about everything, he hates everyone (most especially children), and you’d better run for cover if he becomes the slightest bit upset. But a mystical visit from a laughably chatty Irish “Faerie” Godmother named Aoibheann changes everything. Swarmed over with sudden feelings of tenderness, caring, and worldly wonder, Obidyjah undertakes an elaborate project—the construction of a dollhouse for a local girl. But with Aoibheann off on vacation, the old Obidyjha Grumbles, not so easily defeated, is appalled. Thrust suddenly into a tailspin of horror and self-doubt, Obidyjah must find himself before he disappears into a world of charity and kindness he barely understands and certainly doesn’t trust. This children's tale, touchingly written and vividly illustrated by William S. Lynn, mixes suspense, surprise, and biting wit to weave an ageless tale of one hard-hearted man undergoing an unstoppable transformation into something he has scoffed at and fought against becoming his entire life—a good person.
