Mister Lucky

The 1984 Los Angeles Games offer a last shot at Olympic glory for Robert Rochmann.  A faculty position at a backwater university should allow enough time for training--if he can focus on the weights and not the women.  But his aging, steroid-boosted body fails him, and he faces an investigation for his conduct with coeds.  It takes a young woman with a teddy bear to show him there may be more to life than Olympic gold.

Although Olympic weightlifting is a unique setting for a novel, the themes are universal:  obsession, loss, love and recovery.  Mister Lucky provides a look back at the Me Generation and a reminder that the problems of a quarter century ago, ranging from terrorism to recreational drugs, are with us still.
