Summary

One man’s always humbling and sometimes humorous path to forgiveness and redemption.

Take This, a tight cinematic narrative, follows the journey of a recently divorced and dispirited sixty-year-old psychotherapist, Robert Tevis, traveling in a Winnebago from his former home in upstate New York, eventually ending up in Costa Rica.

“Oh, the complications of love, marriage, family! They’re all here in Take This. Steven Lewis handles his characters with gentleness and insight. If only all our faults could be judged by someone as compassionate as Steven Lewis.” — Ellen Bass, Like a Beggar

“Steve Lewis knows that for many in the boomer generation, the Merry Pranksters’ bus is now a Winnebago. But he also knows that the thrill of the trip is undiminished, the route, quite possibly, just as insane, the destination equally unknown. Along the way, Lewis documents—with tenderness, insight, and outright hilarity—all those ways in which the volatile forces and unpredictable circumstances that forge family bonds may be stronger than the errant behaviors that sometimes fray them.” — Akiko Busch, The Incidental Steward: Reflections on Citizen Science

Take This is a soulful gem of a novel, chronicling the last days of Robert Tevis, a psychotherapist with a big heart and no regrets. At turns funny and tender, author Steven Lewis takes readers on an end-of-life road trip that leads them into territory that redefines love.” — Sally Koslow, The Widow Waltz

Steven Lewis is a former Mentor at SUNY–Empire State College, a current member of the Sarah Lawrence Writing Institute faculty, and an active freelancer. His work has appeared in many places, including the New York Times, Washington Post, LA Times, Christian Science Monitor, and Ploughshares.
