In the vein of Philip Roth s 'Everyman', the story of a man contemplating the meaning and nature of life, the ordinary and extraordinary moments, the successes and failures alike. Life is uneven. And from the moment of James Early Winwood s conception until his inevitable end, his life is no exception. The unflinching and inviting narrator of 'The Wait' takes us along on a journey - from family dramas to lost loves, failed ambitions to the challenges of an aging body all the while tracing the steps of our unique and common experience. Without agenda or gloss, and contemplating the human condition with refreshing honesty, Early shares both the darkest parts of himself and life s brightest, fleeting moments. A philosophical and reflective story, The Wait suggests that though we are forged by a handful of events - dramatic, planned, or unexpected - it is ultimately in those moments in-between, waiting for life to happen, when we truly discover who we have become.
