Catching up on a couple of show I missed from being sick, I am glad to say I have Christopher Profeta author of “Live in Pieces” a set of three stories that fall together beautifully to show that we are never too old to come of age.
Chris is a stay at home father dad who teaches writing at nights and weekend at a local community college. Being a full time parent, like the character in the book it has been a struggle for him to find the time to write while taking care of his two young children. The book however brings together some of these thoughts plus a few ideas into a three story , each one written in a different tense, everything he has wanted to say for a long time, master piece.
About “Live in Pieces”: (Taken from Jeanz Book Reads N Reviews)
Life in Pieces," tells the story of an unemployed stay-at-home-dad who wakes up one morning and reads the paper only to find out he is running for congress. The unlikely candidate's thoughts serve as a pointed satire of politics and the economy, as well as a moving love story about the strength and importance of family.
In the second "piece" of the story, Michael Langley, a college freshman, struggles to find his place in a new setting that doesn't make much sense to him. When he finally meets a group of friends that make him feel at home, he realizes that if he is to build a life with what might be the woman of his dreams, he'll have to give up everything he thought he ever wanted.
And somewhere, a crazy old man couldn't care less about either of these stories. This last "piece" follows two old lovers who have figured out a way to ignore the struggles of the world around them and be comforted only by their love as they reach the end of their earthly lives together, and resolve the conflicts of their past.
In "Life in Pieces," all these stories come gracefully together to show that we are never too old to come of age.
