 About the Book 

A young man from a wealthy New England family attends private schools, goes to a Prep School, and as a teenager becomes disenchanted with his background. Embarrassed by the materialistic people he sees around him, he takes himself out of this protected lifestyle and spirals into an odyssey of poverty that is compounded by his compulsive behavior patterns with gambling, alcohol and other drugs. A personal revolution takes place that leads him to a sanctuary within the eye of his own storm where he finds salvation and meaning as an artist.
