Do you ever feel like you might have just one more chance to get on top of your life and make things happen?
Andrew Van Fleet and Bamberg Davis Kirchner have parted company. Private equity has let him go without a fuss, and he's opting for a job that will let him spend more time at home. But the house is overrun by iPads and teenage hormones and conversations that have moved on without him. Plus his ailing father is now lodged in the granny flat, convalescing from surgery with his scrappy bulldog in tow.
And then there's Brian Brightman, the expensive fading star at the radio station Andrew's signed up to manage, still gotcha-calling and dropping single entendres as if it's the '80s. He, too, is starting to wonder if the 21st century might prove to be his second best. He's Andrew's worst nightmare, but they're thrown together on a road trip to face their shared fear of obsolescence, with hilarious consequences.
Beautifully written, hilarious story of a man trying to come to terms with a modern life.

I absolutely loved the story and the delivery. Definitely recommend it to all. Late Emptying Penis.
Great humorous commentary on the move from an analogue to digital world and the implications for those on the journey.
