Me, Myself and Them (Trade Paperback)

  • by Dan Mooney


A fresh, funny and poignant story about human connection and the power of friendship.

For Denis Murphy, life is fine. He carefully avoids physical human contact and social situations, and sticks to a strict daily routine. It’s his way of coping with the tragedy that changed his life seven years ago. Really, his only problem is the four monsters he has for roommates, a ragtag bunch determined to create chaos in his otherwise orderly world. Then Rebecca, Denis’s enigmatic ex-girlfriend from his former life, returns to town. Shocked to meet the new Denis, she becomes fixated on bringing back the funny, charismatic man she once loved. But as she helps Denis rediscover the person he used to be, he is forced to confront the demons that share his house, and his head.

By turns heartbreaking and heartwarming, Me, Myself and Them deftly explores mental illness with compassion and in entirely original terms. With wit and charm, Dan Mooney offers a wholly new perspective on the effects of grief and the power of human connection.
