Time Out New York Names The 15 Best Books 2016

Bucky F*cking Dent by David Duchovny (Farrar, Straus and Giroux)

"Everything changes for Ted—and Ivy League graduate who sells peanuts at Yankee Stadium by day and works on the Great American Novel by night—when he discovers his estranged father is dying. Ted moves back into his childhood home to care for the cantankerous widower, and plenty of melodrama ensues as the two reconnect. Though it sounds grim, actor-author Duchovny's novel is full-on hilarious, finding joy in even the smallest moments between father and son." Time Out New York
