A NovelBook - 2019
"Phil Brenner has fallen into a slump. All of his life's achievements have somehow crept into disarray. As a freelance journalist, his career pinnacles keep receding in the rearview, as he struggles to stay relevant in a culture that prizes identity over experience. He feels unfairly cast aside by younger generations, and has been designated the "white male of privilege" he spent much of his youth rallying against. As a husband, he lost touch with his wife, whose job supports the suburban lifestyle he never wanted. As a father, his two daughters repel any attempt he makes to connect. But when a chance arises to cover the refugee crisis in the Balkans, Phil seizes the opportunity to reinvent himself into the person he could be, if only he could tear down the tired notions of who he has become."--Page  of cover.
