A provocative work of fiction, Steven Gillis's compelling first novel, Walter Falls, employs a fresh narrative voice while revisiting classic themes of identity, love and marriage, guilt, envy and ambition, all with surprising repercussions. The protagonist, Walter Brimm, is a financial advisor in his mid-thirties, husband to Gee, a professor at the University of Renton, and father to a seven-year-old daughter, Rea. His life appears nearly perfect, but this proves an illusion as slowly his world unravels; his actions and reactions to specific events costing him his job, his family, and his health. In search of redemption, Walter's personal journey provides a gripping story of intimate longing and a fallen man's brave attempt to reconcile all that has caused him to sabotage his happiness while answering questions seeded deep in his past.
