When his older brother is called back up to serve a third tour of duty in Iraq, Michael heads down to New Jersey to say goodbye—possibly for the last time—hoping to send his brother off with a wild weekend party. But his growing depression and frustration with his situation lead to dramatic and unexpected confrontations with his past—and his uncertain future.

"Slip Sliding Away" vividly portrays a young poet’s risible & poignant post-graduate launch into life (a four-letter word), aided and abetted by family situations, sex, booze, and rock & roll.” — Kaye George, author, "Eine Kleine Murder," the "Imogene Duckworthy" series and "Death in the Time of Ice"
