    Colin Singleton has always had bad luck with women, i.e., a particular type of woman—girls called Katherine. He’s a sucker for these girls and he doesn’t date any other women with other names. But he’s just gotten dumped again and his friend Hassan has a solution to cure his despondency. W. Somerset Maugham postulated in “The Razor’s Edge” that nothing cures heartbreak like an ocean cruise but when you’re a recent high school graduate on limited funds, ocean cruises can be a bit steep. So Colin and Hassan are taking a road trip, the staple of American comedic teen movies. Filled with amusing little side-notes and tidbits about history, math and linguistics (just what you’d expect from a book about a child prodigy), “An Abundance of Katherines” gets more and more interesting the deeper you get into it. But it’s not just a compendium of boring data; Colin grows past his silly obsession with Katherines and learns that life isn’t always plottable or chartable. A bully, a cheating girlfriend and a rampaging razorback pig make for agreeable plot points.
