FEVER 42

by Christopher Fahy

First Edition Hard Cover.

Stephen King
"..Fever 42 was both wildly funny and surprisingly sad..it will attract a lot of attention. Chris is a wonderful writer"

Michael Kimball--Author
"All the thrills and spills of a runaway mid-life crisis--from the safety of your armchair...delightfully scandalous.

Jack Ketchum
"Chris Fahy has done some extraordinary things here...a ride that fundamentally makes you worry for your own strange trajectory.."

Portland Maine Sunday Telegram, March 2, 2003
"...Scandalous, decadent and gut-wrenching... Tales off like a drag racer howling down a quarter-mile track."

John Robinson, Portland Press Herald, March 2, 2003
"There is something wonderful about Christopher Fahys writing. Its scandalous, decadent and gut-wrenching."

OVERVIEW:
They were back in the audio-visual room again and Ted said, "Joy, were crazy to do things here in school!" Her eyes were shining. "But isnt it great when you almost get caught?" she said. "Dont you feel so alive?"

Ted Wharton, 42, a teacher at Whitman High in Somerside, New Jersey, lives a routine suburban life with his wife and kids. After fifteen years at the school he is disenchanted with teaching; hes just going through the motions at work-and also at home. Nothing excites him anymore, he fears that nothing ever will, and the clock is ticking.

Then it happens: on the same day that one of Teds colleagues drops dead of a heart attack, Joy Dollinger, 17, a bright, irreverent, stunningly beautiful senior in one of his classes, makes a play for him. He puts up no resistance, and lets Joy take him on a long soul-shattering trip that shakes his spirit from its sleep. Exhilarated, fully alive for the first time in years, he revels in his wild trysts with Joy-many of which take place at Whitman High.

Day after day, Ted lives on the edge, obsessed with Joy-and terrified that his life will unravel. If his wife finds out whats going on, what then? If his colleagues find out? If Joys father, whos trying to purge the Somerside schools of "obscene" books finds out? Or what if Joy, as she hints she might, tells all to her parents unless Ted vows to marry her? Panicked, he tries to end their relationship-and things spiral out of control.

A tragicomical tale of desire, deceit and betrayal, Fever 42 is a thunderbolt of a novel, an unforgettable Joyride.

From the Publisher, Dave Hinchberger (Overlook Connection Press)
"Fever 42" is one of Christopher Fahys finest written novels. As soon as I finished it, I knew that I had to publish it. Discovering the emotions and turmoil that Ted Wharton gets himself into shows that anyone can reach a "fever" in the mid-forties. Discover how Ted handles it.. and how he attempts to pull himself out of this sweat drenched moment in time. Which he may ... or may not, regret.
