Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Prin is a forty-year-old English professor who lives in Toronto. Following a cancer diagnosis, he resolves to be a better husband, father, and Catholic. He has a chance to do so when he learns that his university is going to shut down unless it comes up with a new purpose. He's asked to figure this out in the company of a Chinese real estate magnate and his flirty ex-girlfriend while also dealing with the demands of having four small children, a skeptical wife, and deranged, recently divorced parents. In the middle of a business meeting he has a mystical religious experience that compels him to go to the Middle East--with his ex-girlfriend--where he encounters God, temptation, and a gun-toting young Muslim man who also wants to do something big for his faith. A novel about a deeply Catholic Sri Lankan English professor, Original Prin is a strangely funny book sure to touch, vex, and amuse."-- Provided by publisher.
