Product Overview

If life is not a test, then what is it? Thats what Alvin Taylor, a 27-year-old alcoholic janitor, tries to figure out over his winter vacation with help from a mocking, yet conscientious, voice, but after a belligerent night in Canada with his friend, Alvin decides to sober up and give back to society-by becoming a crossing guard at an elementary school. Somewhere along the line, between the idealisms of youth and the realities of adulthood, we become pacified by our jobs; we tolerate how we hurt the world so that we can sustain our lives. At some point, blurred in the past, we traded the greater good for ourselves. -From Frog in the Pot Frog in the Pot is a meditation on loneliness, its desperation, loss, and rejection. The narrative is a mixture of introspection, opinion, and drunken nonsense; but there is a larger theme that underscores this prose, something reticent in those of us caught between generations, or a quarter-life crisis. This novel is an entertaining blend of cynicism, sarcasm, and desolation, though at its heart is a thread of hope. *Author: Beckham II, Richard *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 232 *Publication Date: 2009/11/25 *Language: English *Dimensions: 4.99 x 7.99 x 0.52 inches
