Pg. 69: Ben Tanzer's "Most Likely You Go Your Way and I’ll Go Mine"

The current feature at the Page 69 Test: Ben Tanzer's Most Likely You Go Your Way and I’ll Go Mine.

About the novel:
Most Likely You Go Your Way and I'll Go Mine takes place in an early nineties New York City and follows the romance between Jen and Geoff the novel's two main characters. It is a story about fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, the value of friends, the reason its best to go out for coffee on first dates and what exactly defines being on the rebound. The characters riff on their favorite books, channel Yoda and Bob Dylan, deal with siblings and try to make sense of a world that shouldn't be as confusing as it seems to be. They also seek greater self-awareness and debate why Dallas will always be superior to Knots Landing, even as they find love, lose it and find it again.
Among the early blurbs for Most Likely You Go Your Way and I’ll Go Mine:
"Sounds like fun to me. Who doesn't like a novel about questionable choices, pop culture and porn?"

"[Most Likely You Go Your Way] looks just as good [as Lucky Man]. As Ben is so fond of saying, it very well might change your life."
--Pete Anderson

"Tanzer is most definitely quite gifted with words and characters and plot...."
--Nick Ostdick

"I love the dialogue between the characters. Sometimes all you need is a few distinct lines or sentences to get your imagination rolling. And the title: 'Most likely you go your way and I'll go mine' is compelling to me. It has a kind of 'punch' to it that most titles do not. I think it's a feeling or mood we can all relate to on a personal or emotional level. It stays with you."
--Michael Paige Glover
