<<but I don't remember any with a carpenter. Which book was that?>>

_Carpenter's Glue_, a hitherto unpublished gem. Its protagonist is a sniffing carpenter and former professional wrestler whose professional liability insurance refuses to cover damages to the breathing apparatus of a bad blonde who is always hanging around the shop. She turns out to be his mother, the insurance is forced to pay, and they get married.
