The handyman : a novel by Carolyn See( Book )

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 )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,175 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

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
