Synopsis

The Tragic Age is a brilliant, debut coming-of-age novel about a misanthropic young man learning to love, trust, and truly be alive in an absurd world. This is the story of Billy Kinsey, heir to a lottery fortune, part genius, part philosopher and social critic, full-time insomniac, and closeted rock drummer. Billy has decided that the best way to deal with an absurd world is to stay away from it. Do not volunteer. Do not join in. Billy will be the first to tell you it doesnt always worknot when your twin sister, Dorie, has died, not when your unhappy parents are at war with one another, not when frazzled soccer moms in two-ton SUVs are more dangerous than atom bombs, and not when your guidance counselor keeps asking why you havent applied to college.? Billys life changes when two people enter it. Twom Twomey is a charismatic renegade who believes that truly living means going a little outlaw. Twom and Billy become each others benefactor and friend. At the same time, Billy is reintroduced to Gretchen Quinn, an old and adored friend of Dories. It is Gretchen who suggests to Billy that the world can be transformed by creative acts of the soul.? With Twom, Billy visits the dark side. And with Gretchen, Billy experiences possibilities. He knows that one path is leading him toward disaster and the other toward happiness. The problem is, Billy doesnt trust happiness. Its the age hes atthe tragic age.
