The Voice of Willie Morgan by Tom Winton

You would think Robert Morgan has it made. If you’re into success and wealth, toys and excess, he’d be your hero. Not yet forty, he is by far the youngest CEO in Amalgamated Petroleum’s long illustrious history, and he’s also Big Oil’s go-to-guy. He has a penthouse in Manhattan, a sprawling estate in Westport (complete with helipad), and a six-bedroom summer “cottage” in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. Not too shabby for a kid who grew up in a hard-knocks section of Queens, New York.

But lately something has been eating at Robert—something even his wife Paige doesn’t know about—something called truth. For quite some time he’s been publicly denying the ill effects his industry has had on the planet and it’s finally getting to him. But that’s not all that’s weighing on him. He’s also being haunted by the gravelly voice of his rough-around-the-edges, long-dead father. The old man is continually lambasting him for his lies, and it’s driving Robert to the brink of madness.

Falling Man by William H. Duryea

An agonizing reflection on a society of shared post-traumatic stress. (No, that’s not it.) A highly personal chronicle of learned helplessness and depression. (Not quite.)A series of agnostic parables, morals not included. (Don’t get cute with me.) Another childish white male temper tantrum. (There, you got it)Falling Man is a collection of 34 pieces of short prose and poetry about mental illness, suicide, and the incoherent nightmare of early 21st Century life. The works included touch on moments of recent historical trauma ranging from the Charleston church massacre (“Storm Roof”) to 9/11 (“Falling Man”) to the Trump presidency (“The White House at Night”) as well as the smaller pains and humiliations of daily life. Or, in other words: more sad garbage from an entitled millennial. Enjoy.
