"Pete Fromm is a powerful, lucid writer, a perfect guide to the unpredictable rivers and people of the interior West, to their deep channels and breathtaking turns." --Jess Walter, author of Beautiful Ruin


"Pete Fromm is one of America's best-kept literary secrets." --Thom Jones, author of Sonny Liston Was a Friend of Mine


Five-time winner of the Pacific Northwest Bookseller Award Pete Fromm returns with his big-hearted new novel, a love story about family and resiliency and second chances. For young couple Taz and Marnie, their fixer-upper is the symbol of their new life together: a work in progress, the beginning of something grand, all the more so when they learn a baby is on her way. But the blueprint for the perfect life eludes Taz when Marnie dies in childbirth, plummeting the taciturn carpenter headfirst into the new, strange world of fatherhood alone, a landscape of contradictions, of great joy and sorrow. With a supporting cast as rich and compelling as the wild Montana landscape, the novel follows Taz's first two years as a father--a job no one can be fully prepared for.


With more than eleven books in over twenty years, Pete Fromm has become one of the West's best literary legends. A Job You Mostly Won't Know How To Do beautifully captures people who end up building a life that is both unexpected and brave.
