Three lifelong friends — Ben, Levi, and Tracy — take very different paths after high school, but all have brushes with danger and war. What happens in war? Only injury, if one is lucky.

This powerful novel tells of Levi’s war with family tragedy and alcoholism, of Ben’s war with rage, and Tracy and Levi’s Vietnam War experiences. Ben is called to treat the wounds of war, both with his friend Levi, and in his professional role as an organizational consultant.

This unusual combination of prequel/sequel to author Nick Mann’s 2013 debut novel, Forgetful, weaves compelling stories around the intersecting themes of urban renewal, the Vietnam War, addiction, and the professional and personal lives of contemporary black friendship networks. The gang from the Washington, D.C. neighborhood of Michigan Park returns in his second novel to face challenges of love for one another and struggling with the complexities of their own existence.

A persuasive dean from a historically black university in Washington, D.C. talks Dr. Benjamin Parks into leading a seminar on cross-cultural relationships. Bright students enroll and question whether bridges really can be built across racial, gender, attraction orientation, political, and religious divides. The universal dilemmas explored in the seminar are but one of the multilayered complexities that in some ways challenge and in other ways trap Ben Parks. His professional achievements can’t substitute for the loving, peaceful home life that stays just out of reach. Compounding the situation, Ben is afraid he is losing his memory and may be suffering from early dementia. He experiences embarrassing signs at unexpected times in both his professional life as an organizational consultant and part-time college professor, and in his hot and cold relationship with his wife Addie. Ben is blessed with a career hob-knobbing with corporate and government movers and shakers as they wrestle with complex strategic leadership questions. But as multiple family members around him are succumbing to Alzheimer’s, Ben wonders if he’s next in line.
