American Dream tells the multigenerational story of the Marcello family in New York. Daniel Marcello, an artist struggling with clinical depression and poverty, finds himself in line to inherit a family castle. His older sister Janet however, intends to exclude him from inheritance due to his mental condition. Facing eviction and unable to afford basic necessities, including mental health care, Daniel must act immediately. In undertaking the journey to resolution the novel unfolds to confront every fear, doubt, insecurity, dream, and past memory in battling depression. What must be done when the dream becomes a nightmare? Every single page in this book is a revelation. Every character introduced plays a crucial role to the plot and symbolically represents an emotion or stage in overcoming the struggle. A sweeping tale from the beginning to its conclusion, this tale inexorably examines how the internal world we keep private affects the external world that everyone sees. Inevitably, you'll find yourself seeking to redefine the term American dream. At some point, most people have experienced, or have known someone who has dealt with depression, this is their book. Prepare to be enraptured. With American Dream JJ Brown delivers another expertly crafted work of realistic fiction.
