A struggling young artist goes to work as a handyman, only to see himself called to fix relationships- -lonely grandmothers, love-starved wives, aids victims-- all unhappy, all in need of an ear or physical contact.

There will never be another you : a novel by Carolyn See( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the near future, the global threat of terror has cultivated rage, apathy, and panic. People fear that "anybody could be armed, or have a bomb. Or a disease. Or all three." For Phil, a dermatologist, it is a time of unease and uncertainty, in contrast to the days when he coasted through life on his good looks, a modicum of charm, and only haphazard effort. Phil's energies are divvied up among his belligerent children, his grieving mother, his wayward wife, and his unreliable mistress. Then he is recruited for a top-secret team to act in the event of a biological or chemical attack. The assignment just may provide him with a sense of purpose. Yet dire circumstances force Phil to make profound decisions that will affect the entire country. It is a chance for an ordinary man to rise from mediocrity to heroism--and failure would be catastrophic.--From publisher description

Mothers, daughters by Carolyn See( Book )

12 editions published between 1977 and 1998 in English and German and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A witty, sometimes withering novel of marriage and divorce and the way we live today--a story of two people in love who ignore their own sexual history, of their children, poised to repeat it, and of the loose Southern California culture that formed them. Ruth is a divorcee with two daughters, a job in television, friends, and occasional lovers. Then why the insomnia, the nameless fears in the night, the disturbing flashes of her own mistakes in her children? When Marc, the glamour figure of her youth, former lover of her best friend, comes to town, she sees him against her better judgment and falls in love. This time it will be different. But theirs is a love affair threatened by the clutter of the past--children, friends, the people they once were. Mothers, Daughters is a novel about middle-aged men and women caught in a youth culture from which they are precluded by the baggage of their lives, about parents eagerly embracing a sexual revolution while their children grow to maturity before their startled eyes, about responsibility and running away and, finally, about the demands of love. A wise and moving book, and a powerful look at a contemporary life-style of splintered families and fragile relationships."--Jacket
The rest is done with mirrors; a novel by Carolyn See( Book )

5 editions published between 1970 and 1990 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A novel about married graduate students at UCLA--how they live, breed, fornicate, study and how they are corrupted. It is one of the most stunningly blunt portraits of university life to appear in modern fiction; a trip through a maze of crumbling identities and substandard housing, tireless antagonisms and elusive government grants, half-forgotten dreams and half-satisfied passions. Our guides through the maze are graduate students Edith Wong, the lower middle class WASP wife of Walter Wong, Chinese-American anthropologist; and Juan Ramirez, a Mexican-American biologist married to a painter. Their story is the story of a conspiracy between the university, the federal government and the great research-development organizations to absorb and use, for the purpose of Defense (death?), the talents and imaginations of our most gifted scientific graduate students."--Author's website
There will never be another you by Carolyn See( Recording )

This story captures the paranoia and propaganda of a volatile time and place in which humanity's divisions run deep and society sits on edge- and one Southern California family faces profound crises from within and without. It is a moment in the near future when the global threat of terror has cultivated rage, apathy, and panic across the country. People fear that "anybody could be armed, or have a bomb. Or a disease. Or all three." For Phil, a dermatologist at the UCLA hospital, it is a time of unease and uncertainty, in stark contrast to the days when he coasted through life on his good looks, a modicum of charm, and only haphazard effort. Now Phil must deal with his mother, Edith, who's been grieving over the death of her husband for several years and only recently has thought to reconnect with a family that seems to have other priorities. Phil's energies are already divvied up among his belligerent children, his wayward wife, and his unreliable mistress
