What I'm Reading: The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving

Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving book cover by Jonathan EvisonThe Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving
by Jonathan Evison
Algonquin Books (August 2012)
Adult Fiction


After losing virtually everything meaningful in his life, Benjamin trains to be a caregiver, but his first client, a fiercely independent teen with muscular dystrophy, gives him more than he bargained for and soon the two embark on a road trip to visit the boy's ailing father. 

Why You'll Love It:
  • Has all the trappings of the movie Little Miss Sunshine, including embarrassingly funny surprises, side-splitting laughter, and the ability to steal your heart.
  • It's a big-hearted novel that tackles the joys and heartbreak of caring for others, told with great wit and deep perception.
  • Evison injects some levity with Trev's horny commentary and Ben's wry retorts, blending humor, sharp dialogue, and a rich and detailed backstory.
