After Sam Holland--a husband, father, and novelist whose life appears to be stagnating--writes a pseudonymous work on UFOs that soars to bestsellerdom, he is plunged into a whirlpool of fame and fortune, and his life begins to spiral out of control

Blackwell North Amer
Sam Holland is in his forties - a man of considerable charm, a husband for sixteen years, a responsible (he believes) father, a novelist of high repute but unspectacular income, whose work, marriage, life, appear to be stalled. Until - almost as a lark - he writes a (pseudonymous) primer on UFOs which overnight soars to bestsellerdom. And as Sam - now anointed by the press and unable to walk away from his first taste of big money and celebrity - is sucked up into the national cyclone of hype, his life spins violently out of control.
Possessed of the introspective edge Spencer brings to all his work, moving and comic too, Men in Black is a totally engrossing portrait of a man in free fall and his return to himself.
