Book Sleuth - The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving

From Amazon: 
Benjamin Benjamin has lost virtually everything—his wife, his family, his home, his livelihood. With few options, Ben enrolls in a night class called The Fundamentals of Caregiving, where he is instructed in the art of inserting catheters and avoiding liability, about professionalism, and on how to keep physical and emotional distance between client and provider.
But when Ben is assigned to tyrannical nineteen-year-old Trevor, who is in the advanced stages of Duchenne muscular dystrophy, he soon discovers that the endless mnemonics and service plan checklists have done little to prepare him for the reality of caring for a fiercely stubborn, sexually frustrated adolescent with an ax to grind with the world at large.

  1. I just started reading this a couple of nights ago and I quite like it. Then again, I mostly like Algonquin's fiction offerings.

    1. It's nice when you can rely on a publisher like that.

  2. I really want to read this one. I read a book awhile back about an Irish man caring for a deeply disabled boy & the relationship they had and it was just so interesting.
