After a prolific run of four novels that began nearly twenty years ago with his career-making Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions, Daniel Wallace finally slowed his pace in the mid-aughts. He returned in 2013 with The Kings and Queens of Roam, a cautionary adult fairy tale of sorts, and his new book, Extraordinary Adventures, continues his tradition of melding the ordinary and the mythological into compelling novelistic worlds. Using a classic structure, the book hinges on the upending of order and the reverberations of an agent of change. For Edsel Bronfman, a shipping clerk, the catalyst comes in the form of a free weekend in sunny Florida. But since the deal is couples-only, Edsel, saddled with a name that is synonymous with failure, needs a date in the worst way. As he pursues this vital connection, he begins to awaken to a world of glorious possibilities. —David Klein
