About the Book
The 1984 Los Angeles Games offer a last shot at Olympic glory for Robert Rochmann. A faculty position at a backwater university should allow enough time for training--if he can focus on the weights and not the women. But his aging, steroid-boosted body fails him, and he faces an investigation for his conduct with coeds. It takes a young woman with a teddy bear to show him there may be more to life than Olympic gold.

Although Olympic weightlifting is a unique setting for a novel, the themes are universal: obsession, loss, love, and recovery. MISTER LUCKY provides a look back at the Me Generation and a reminder that problems of a quarter century ago, ranging from terrorism to recreational drugs, are with us still.
