Into Owenss charmed life comes a ten-year-old girl whose claims he cannot ignore: Jane is his daughter, born out of wedlock, raised in communes, and now dispatched into his care by a mother who is no longer capable of providing it. As this raggedy, preternaturally observant girl seeks a place within Owenss circle, A Regular Guy depicts the miraculous chemistry that transforms longing into belonging, an uneasy menage into a family, and an arrogant boy-man into a father.Simpson understands families.

She understands money. She understands America. This is a poignant, funny book about loss and disillusionment. - Chicago Tribune
