The Man of the House is a hilarious novel about an endearingly disaffected hero...McCauley's writing is most reminescent of Ann Tyler's...A sharp funny but ultimately affectionate satire on the kind of people who've thought of themselves as young for too long...

I found this to be a very enjoyable novel. It was both funny and poignant at the same time. It is narrated by a Clyde, a gay man in his late 30's who lives in Cambridge, Mass in a rented home with a straight male friend. His life is at a standstill. He's in a dead-end living situation, in a dead-end job, and holding on to a dead relationship. The arrival of an old friend, her son, and a dog, finally change the course of his life.
