The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving
by Jonathan Evison
For Ben Benjamin, all has been lost—his wife, his family, his home, his livelihood. Hoping to find a new direction, he enrolls in a night class called The Fundamentals of Caregiving, where he will learn to take care of people with disabilities. But when Ben is assigned his first client—a tyrannical nineteen-year-old boy named Trevor, who is in the advanced stages of Duchenne muscular dystrophy—he soon discovers that his training has done nothing to prepare him for the reality of caring for a fiercely stubborn, sexually frustrated teenager who has an ax to grind with the whole world. Bursting with energy, this big-hearted novel ponders life’s terrible surprises as well as what it takes to truly care for another human being.
