FESTUS, Mo. – “That Which is Human” (published by Xlibris) is author Richard M. Storey’s novel that examines what a man can become and revert to when pushed to his limits and is heroic in a way that is terribly flawed.
The story follows Grayson Thomas, an unhappily married father of three, who is suddenly wrested from his predictable and dissatisfying day-in, day-out routine by an unspeakable tragedy that renders him adrift in an abyss of pain and loss. Devoid of experiencing emotion for years, he is forced to negotiate difficult circumstances personally and professionally without coherence of direction. His struggle with these issues intensifies when he realizes his pain and loss and resultant despair were orchestrated by the diabolical presence of a no name man with a predilection for chaos and an inability to suppress his psychotic urges. Grayson, faced with this knowledge determines a direction taking him to dangerous situations he finds both foreign and familiar.
“That Which is Human” explores how the desire and longing for meaning in life can be a process filled with hopelessness and despair and how it can be complicated by those who enter and leave. This story examines what one man does in response to someone who enters with the worst destructive intent creating chaos and irreparable damage.
