A just-fired 27 year-old editor makes this observation after taking a spontaneous trip from Manhattan to Montauk, a seaside hamlet on the tip of Long Island’s South Fork. While the nameless narrator does manage to replace the concrete jungle with ocean beaches, he isn’t able to shake the malaise of his quarter-life crises. In fact, Montauk’s off-season solitude only serves to feed his own sense of loneliness.
In the doldrums since graduating from college, the disillusioned young man has been going through the motions to stay under the radar at work, having four stouts and a corned beef on rye at the same pub several times each week, collecting records without owning a turntable, and drinking. A lot. He doesn’t have a girlfriend or any friends for that matter, unless you count his stoner landlord. He even distanced himself from his mom and sister after his father died the year before.

Turns out- not only was it a great read- but captured the essence of LI perfectly- trip down memory lane!
Main character has a good deal of dialog -both internally and to others -VERY realistic- Story line also is one most people will be able to identify with on one or more levels (no matter where you live now or where you grew up...)
Will check out his other (shorter) works that the previous reviewer noted- as I thoroughly enjoyed this!
