To Rise Again at a Decent Hour

Identity. The protagonist of Joshua Ferris’ novel, To Rise Again at a Decent Hour, is not your average dentist. Paul O’Rourke runs a lucrative Park Avenue dental practice with a quirky staff that includes his former lover. He’s a Red Sox fan in Yankee country. His identity is stolen and religious proclamations start appearing on a website O’Rourke did not create, causing consternation to his atheistic sensibilities. This novel is quirky, clever, witty and thoroughly entertaining, especially to those readers who can be patient and who appreciate the ways in which Ferris draws out beliefs and behavior that reveal character and true identity.
