Overview

In the tradition of Philip Roth’s Everyman, and in a voice that is unmistakably Frank Turner Hollon’s, the story of one man contemplating the nature of life — the ordinary and extraordinary moments, the successes and failures alike.

Life is uneven, unexpected, and unpredictable. And from the moment of James Early Winwood’s conception until his inevitable end, his life is no exception.

Early, the unflinching and inviting narrator of The Wait, takes us along on a personal journey — from family dramas to lost loves, from failed ambitions to the challenges of an aging body — all the while tracing the steps of his unique, though common, experience. Without agenda, Early shares both the darkest parts of himself and life’s brightest, most fleeting moments.

An honest and unglossed novel about the human condition, The Wait demonstrates that although our lives are forged by a handful of events, it is ultimately during those moments in between, where we are waiting for life to happen, that we truly discover who we have become.

    Look at Yourself Reading Wait

    Wait is a worthwhile novel from an interesting mind, that will make you think about your soul, and the state of it, and the reasons why your soul may be in that state. It will make you look around your life with a new, healthy suspicion, and try to imagine your spouse with a gun in his hand, standing there blankly, ready to pull the trigger.

    A reviewer

    The Wait----which could have easily been called 'The Weight' -- is one of the best books I have read in the last ten years. It follows Early Winwood from conception to death, layering bawdy anecdotes over Early's harrowing choices, trying to calculate the value of redemption. Hollon generally writes ambitious, smart, layered novels with the kind of thematic focus that fans of John Updike and Robert Penn Warren will appreciate, and THE WAIT may be well be his finest work to date.
