Welcome Rain, 2003 - Fiction - 349 pages
0 Reviews
On the day his big time ambitions seem about to be realized, Chandler "Chancey" Haste glances into the rearview mirror of the limousine that bears him across Manhattan's Triboro Bridge and catches the reflection of a scorching affair from his past overleaping continents to engulf him ...
Chancey On Top is an irreverent novel that exposes with wicked insight and aplomb the strikingly similar hypocrisies that underlie romantic love and modern business. It chronicles the journey of a picaresque protagonist who pursues success, sex, love, and enlightenment on three continents, and finds too much of everything.
The story begins with a backward glance to a bouncing check and a reckless antipodean infatuation. It sweeps through marbled World Trade Center offices where the sweet life seems utterly assured. It ends in the shadows of a murky English mansion where the hero discovers the price of ambition, the value of love, and the meaning of dreams.
