Normal or Nothing Like It
40 isn’t the time for a mid-life crisis. In these sixteen interwoven short stories, we meet a group of 40-year-olds learning to deal with the things life throws at them while trying to juggle their jobs, family and personal connections. Trying to finally be their true selves and discovering if they are normal or nothing like it.
There’s Teresa, a woman trying to deny that she is turning 40, and her brother, Max, who’s in denial that his family is living beyond their means. May is trying to find love again while still not over her ex and Blake is either meeting the man of his dreams or his nightmares. Then there is Lenore, who is trying to decide if she loves or hates her husband, while Brian can’t believe he’s raised a son capable of committing a crime. These are stories of love, hope, loss and the inexplicable feeling that everyone who said your life should be settled at 40 was lying.
This is the debut novel for award winning screenwriter and playwright, Wayne Tunks. Besides getting older, 40 can’t be all too bad, can it?
