Patrick O'Neil spends his days avoiding clients at the travel agency he works for and his nights avoiding his safe, but passionless romance with his lover Arthur. A tale of doing what you want to do as opposed to what you're supposed to do, McCauley's comedy is filled with longing and truth.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Michael Dorris San Francisco Chronicle Like The Object of My Affection, The Easy Way Out is an exhilarating, entertaining, smart novel. Vivid, quirky characters leap off the page....On one level, the collisions of these men and women are laugh-out-loud funny....McCauley has a marvelous knack of selecting angles of observation that reveal more about a character than the character knows about him or herself. The Easy Way Out is a great story, a page-turner, very contemporary, sometimes arch, always agile....Stephen McCauley is a writer of insight, surprise, and finesse. His novel sings.
Vogue Charm may be the hardest of all qualities to pin down on paper, but The Easy Way Out has it brimming from every page....McCauley has an impeccable ear for the language of family squabbles and a consummate understanding of the small pleasures and guilts that inform love. Right up to its bittersweet end, The Easy Way Out provokes numerous smiles and repeated flashes of recognition.
Detroit News It's hard to resist the lovable folks in McCauley's The Easy Way Out...a wonderfully odd and heartrending collection of people, these more or less lost souls trying to figure out their lives and loves...Quirky, complicated and often hilarious, Stephen McCauley's people are, in the end, just like you and me. Read The Easy Way Out and see just how easy it is to fall in love with them.
