Allen Wier, Charles Maland
This novel is not about a man who knows exactly what he wants out of life. This novel does not have a readily identifiable narrative arc with characters who have readily identifiable motives compelling their actions. This novel is about a man, who despite having all kinds of outward signs of success, cannot figure out why he must leave it all to find something else in another place. Even after he’s found it, he’s not even sure what it is. In short, this novel is about real life.
