Product Description

My Date with Marilyn, Revised January, 2019

"Call me Joseph. I no longer say, ‘I am Joseph.’ Nor do I say, ‘My name is Joseph.’ There have been too many times when it was something else. But the name doesn’t matter anymore. A name is only a word."
Forty-year-old Joseph is attempting to navigate the tumultuous transition to middle age, in search of authenticity and identity. The twenty-year marriage to his childhood sweetheart has ended. He drops out of his fifteen-year career as a surgical instrument salesman and takes a job as a taxi driver so he can pursue his lifelong dream of writing a novel. The clock is ticking, faster and louder, and his long-repressed artistic anima comes roaring out, mad as hell, and demanding expression.
Joseph starts by writing short stories, which begin to connect and interact as overlapping pieces of a larger mosaic. Part One is about the search for "someone to love and good work to do," as Freud said. In Part Two he opens his journals as background for the stories he's writing, as love and work become more and more intricately intertwined. In Part Three he has experienced a tragic ending to his second marriage, and goes to live and work on a small ranch in the mountains of Colorado, seeking a healing.
His floundering journey through the surreal inner maze of mid-life is humorous, poignant, lusty, and at times tragic.
