A Consequence of Ordinary brings you deep into the mind of a generation without direction. Three best friends experience their own rites of passage as they struggle to interpret the very things that drive them after their friend Elliot commits suicide. The narrator fears the nine-to-five lifestyle. When he has no choice but to accept it, he finds that all it takes is one stranger, a man named Theodore Paz-a sometimes mad, sometimes wise ghostwriter, to help him blur the lines of ordinary. Tom Lasso is the successful son of New York City's future mayor, Stuart Lasso. Tom must choose between the life he's made for himself and the life Stuart envisioned for Tom as a device in his political campaign. Meter Stensen is about to take over his family's furniture business when he realizes that he doesn't want the safe life anymore-he wants to take chances and fall in love. A Consequence of Ordinary examines a society dangerously similar to our own. It blends a unique style of prose with distinct social commentary to tell the story of three men who find themselves lost in the new world order, carved from the very passive-aggressive nature that has taken over America's twenty-something crowd.
