In the midst of a world consumed by love, tragedy and wealth, man’s search for meaning has never been more complicated than in the modern age.

In his new novelBecoming Joey Fizz” (published by AuthorHouse), author Stuart A. McKeever shares the epic saga of an ordinary man doing extraordinary things to thrive in the hard-nosed epicenter of New York.

“The common person in the street is on a journey of survival,” McKeever, a retired New York City attorney, says. “Finding the will to make life work for you after trauma is a fascinating thing.”

His novel follows the journey of Joey Mancuso as he travels home from the Korean War and across the nation in search of his place in the world – eventually discovering, after failed dreams in Las Vegas, that he will have to make his life his own way.
