In the restaurant industry, "eighty six" means to toss out—be it expired food or an unruly guest. Similarly, "Eighty-Sixed" deals with a grandfather kicked out of his retirement home for making impossible demands. He causes even more upheaval in the life of his high school-aged grandson after they unceremoniously find themselves living under the same roof. Wilbur and Jack cagily get to know each other on a daily basis rather than just the occasional holiday or special occasion. Unwittingly, each helps the other deal with the frustrations of being ignored or dismissed. "Eighty-Sixed" is a comedic novel for the ages—all ages.
