After Party

After Party
Starting over from square one, moving forward while attempting to clean up the wreckage of the past, After Party offers a peek into the terrains of the author's life, work, family, friends, relationships and pop culture obsessions, during the year at age twenty four when he went against the grain of those around him and decided to stop drinking. In the mornings and nights that came after, this change became threatening, isolating and over time, full of potential; living among the fast paced nightlife in Chicago, and the various emotional hangovers that accompanied it. What began as a selfish bout of discovery during the course of a year, turned into an experience of the highs and lows, dealing with life on life's terms Through humor, cynicism, and reassembled memories, After Party is compiled with the rhythm and beat of a well crafted mix tape: reliving adolescence with the exact same people; delving into the potential soundtrack of one's life; working through cancer and heartbreak over cheeseburgers; and calculating that precise moment in time when someone is forced to look at the concept of growing up. After Party lingers on and stays with the reader long after closing time.
