Chasing the Best Days

Free sample

Greg is a divorced dad who spends most of his time out on the golf course. He and his playing partners at Corona Vista Country Club get drunk and gamble every day after work. But Greg's foreign girlfriend Karla—who happens to be half his age—also demands plenty of attention.

Frustrated with his job and still haunted by the ghosts of his divorce, Greg is desperate for something new. He and his pals Dan and Walt hope the new startup they're scheming over happy hour pitchers of beer will be their ticket out of the 9-5 rut.

As he fights through crowded Los Angeles freeways and frantically looks for golf deals online, Greg also strives to connect with his sons while fending off the ex-wife—and at the end of the day, just try to make a few putts.

Author Philip Wyeth, whose other novels focus on science fiction and politics, embraces a new challenge with Chasing the Best Days. The story is darkly comical but always searching, and ultimately paints a sympathetic portrait of one modern American man struggling to keep himself together while making ends meet. (39,500 words.)
