This second novel from Portland author Yuvi Zalkow is funny, sweet, melancholy, light, deep, absurd, and also endearingly real. Saul, a middle-aged tech worker, is separated from his wife, coparenting their child, trying to date, struggling to write a novel about his grandfather, and wrestling with an increasingly surreal software bug that threatens to destroy the company he begrudgingly works for. Acutely observed and uproariously funny, I Only Cry With Emoticons is an absolute delight.

— Michael

Description


Saul doesn't get why he's misunderstood. At his high-tech day job, he hides in the bathroom writing a novel about his dead grandfather and wonders why his boss wants to fire him. He tells his almost ex-wife about a blind date and wonders why she slams the door in his face. He aches with worry for his seven-year-old son, who seems happier living with his mom and her new man.

When the blind date becomes a complicated relationship, and Saul's blunders at work threaten the survival of the company, Saul has to wake up and confront his fears.

I Only Cry with Emoticons is a quirky comedy that reveals the cost of being disconnected--even when we're using a dozen apps on our devices to communicate--and an awkward man's search for real connections, on and offline.
