9780099554233: Paradise News

Bernard Walsh, agnostic theologian, has a professional interest in heaven. But when he travels to Hawaii with his reluctant father Jack, to visit Jack’s dying, estranged sister, it feels more like purgatory than paradise.

Surrounded by quarrelling honeymooners, a freeloading anthropologist and assorted tourists in search of their own personal paradise, and with his father whisked off to the hospital after an unfortunate accident, Bernard is beginning  to regret ever coming to Hawaii. Until, that is, he stumbles on something he had given up hope of finding: the astonishing possibility of love.

From the Hardcover edition.

From AudioFile:

A gently comic novel of self-fulfillment and culture-clash brings an Anglo-Irish theology teacher to Hawaii with his difficult elderly father in tow. Charles Armstrong, a Brit, reads expressively at a brisk clip. His characterizations are hit-and-miss. All his women are whiny, and his American accent laughable. On the other hand, he makes particularly memorable the ignorant Irish father and a self-important anthropologist completely devoid of common sense. Y.R. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
