Embarking on a road trip to meet a famous television evangelist, Alan Levy drops out of college and explores the multifaceted diversity of American culture, attempting to make sense of the world around him. Elements is a novel that spans a year in the life of the ignorant and perpetually confused young man who tries to bring about changes in his world, but manages to learn only that the root causes of his alienation and loneliness are within himself. Elements explores the landscape of post-9/11 America through the eyes of this young man's experiential hopelessness and emptiness by pulling the audience along the escape Levy attempts to build for himself. Spanning one year and thousands of miles, the newly revised tenth anniversary edition of Solomon Deep's very first book remains the most prolific text delving into the stress, ignorance, and helplessness of post-9/11 Generation Y as they struggle to make sense of an America that seems to be teetering on the edge of senselessness. The Ten Year Anniversary Edition also includes a brand new introduction by the author.
