In the tradition of Philip Roth's" "Everyman, and in a voice that is unmistakably Frank Turner Hollon's, the story of one man contemplating the nature of life -- the ordinary and extraordinary moments, the successes and failures alike.
Life is uneven, unexpected, and unpredictable. And from the moment of James Early Winwood's conception until his inevitable end, his life is no exception.
Early, the unflinching and inviting narrator of The Wait, takes us along on a personal journey -- from family dramas to lost loves, from failed ambitions to the challenges of an aging body -- all the while tracing the steps of his unique, though common, experience. Without agenda, Early shares both the darkest parts of himself and life's brightest, most fleeting moments.
An honest and unglossed novel about the human condition, The Wait" "demonstrates that although our lives are forged by a handful of events, it is ultimately during those moments in between, where we are waiting for life to happen, that we truly discover who we have become.
