The Answer Man

"He wrote the book on life's big questions. But the truth is he hasn't got a clue."

Arlen Faber is a reclusive writer who penned a very popular spiritual tome entitled Me and God. For 20 years, he has lived off of the profits of that book and avoided any kind of limelight, though many people have tried to find him in order to ask his advice. He is an ornery grump, and he wants to keep his identity and address a secret. Circumstances conspire against him, however, particularly when he finds himself dating a woman fresh out of rehab. Faced with someone whose problems are greater than his own, he begins to develop some real empathy.
