Joe Henry, a salesman with Irish Office Machines, greets some VIPs from British Office Machines with an abbreviated sign declaring “BOM.” Ironically, Dublin Airport is closed when a woman sees the sign, screams “BOMB, BOMB,” and faints at his feet. Joe is interrogated and strip searched, which goes horribly wrong for the examining officer, and finally released. Because the VIPs were coming to initiate a hostile business takeover of IOM, Joe gets a bonus instead of getting fired. At home that night, he drinks a bit too much and the combination of booze and painkillers sends him back in time to when he met his wife. This is just the beginning of a hilarious rollercoaster ride through the mid-1960s. You’ll love the unpredictable nature of Joe’s marriage to Susan as they are from completely different backgrounds, Northerner/Southerner, Protestant/Catholic, Working Class/Middle Class, etc… Humor abounds in every scenario throughout this book and we know you’ll enjoy it!
