Jack Caufield never imagined that he would wake up one day and find a dead woman in his bed. That sort of thing wasn’t supposed to happen to guys like him. He was on his way to law school, but instead of fielding Socratic questions from law professors, he finds himself facing the third degree from a bunch of angry cops. Despite their efforts, they find nothing incriminating, and Jack is allowed to get on with his education and his life.
Over the next fifteen years, he becomes a modestly successful corporate lawyer, a well-paid but insignificant cog in the Wall Street machine. He’s resigned to playing a disappointing role in the system that he has come to disdain, until he learns that his encounter with that unlucky girl may not have been coincidental. Confronted with the possibility that the men who run the prestigious financial institution that he now represents may have been involved in a shocking conspiracy, his search for the truth is complicated by the knowledge that discovering it could cost him the career that he’s spent his life chasing.
Peripheral Involvement explores Jack’s struggle to reconcile the reality of his life against his expectations and to refine his understanding of success. Along the way, it looks at the absurdity of the modern-day financial industry, the current state of the American Dream, our propensity for self-deception… and baseball.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
Extremely in depth character development, I feel like I really know Jack Caufield, like I too have sat at the bar stool talking with him. The author nails the internal conflict of a corporate lawyer struggling with continuing down a known path or coming to grips with figuring out what to be when he grows up. I would love to see the story continued.
Bob Waldner’s book was simply fantastic. Waldner has a unique writing style that keeps the reader engaged at all moments. The narrative was so descriptive, and so well-crafted, that one is left wondering how much of the story is fiction and how much of it is actually autobiographical.
Brilliantly written, ‘Peripheral Involvement’ spotlights the angst and alienation of our modern lives.
This is a fantastic book. Well paced, inventive, original, believable, grammatically well written.
Peripheral involvement is an engrossing trip through the mind and life of a young lawyer, haunted by a life changing experience. Great first novel, can’t wait for the next.
