520    "Reeling from a breakup with his almost-fiancée, the 
       narrator of Andrew Palmer's first novel returns to his 
       hometown in Iowa to house-sit for a family friend. There, 
       a chance flick of the TV remote and a correspondence with 
       an old grad school classmate plunge him into unlikely twin
       obsessions: the reality TV show The Bachelor and the 
       Pulitzer Prize-winning poet John Berryman. As his heart 
       begins to mend, his fixation with each deepens and 
       calcifies, and somewhere along the way, art and "reality" 
       become harder and harder to distinguish from life. Love 
       interests accumulate and then fall away: an old girlfriend
       calls and he answers; he meets a young woman at the dry 
       cleaner. Soon he finds himself corresponding intimately, 
       regularly with other suitors (as Berryman did in his 
       lifetime), participating in a group outing (as The 
       Bachelor does each season), and trying to puzzle through 
       the strange turn his life seems to have taken"--|cProvided
