Dan Underlight is a divorced, workaholic technology executive who suffers a lingering grief over the death of his ten-year-old son, Zack. When Dan’s longtime friend and boss fires Dan from RadioRadio (the company that Dan helped to create) he crashes and isolates himself. Willow is a poet and domestic violence survivor who helps Dan regain his footing. With her support, Dan ventures on a pilgrimage of sorts, visiting Fortune 500 companies to flesh out a software start-up idea. He then recruits three former RadioRadio colleagues and starts Conversationworks, a company he believes will be at the vanguard of social change. Guided by Dan’s leadership, Conversationworks enjoys some early successes, but its existence is soon threatened on multiple fronts. Will Dan survive the ensuing corporate battles and realize the potential of his company? Or will he be defeated by his enemies and consumed? A deftly crafted novel by a master of the storytelling arts, “The Beauty of the Fall” is a consistently compelling read from cover to cover and very highly recommended for community library General Fiction collections. It should be noted for personal reading lists that “The Beautify of the Fall” is also available in a Kindle format ($9.99).
