Sandra Vischer presents Unliving the Dream
Annie Bloom's welcomes local author Sandra Vischer to read from her novel, Unliving the Dream.
Things are darn near perfect for Alex Fisher: she runs a successful business with the love of her life, her husband and the father of her two great kids. She’s managed to sail through nearly forty years without so much as a hiccup. That is, until the night her husband announces he’d like to make a change—a change that has apparently been going on for months without Alex’s ;knowledge. Yes, he’s been having an affair with her office assistant, aka Alex’s friend.
Suddenly Alex is bouncing through divorce, through her daughter’s subsequent rebellion, and through the big questions of who Alex herself really is and what she really wants.
No longer living the dream, Alex uses her calm logic, internal dialogue, and sizzling wit—not to mention her friends—to turn the shock of a lifetime into an adventure of self-discovery that takes her from the tropical waters of the Caribbean Sea, to the Utah wilderness, and, finally, along the impoverished streets of Peru.
In this universal tale told through a unique voice, Alex finds that no one escapes unscathed—but we can all have a good laugh and some major personal growth along the way. A humorous, compassionate, and honest look at how the worst time in one’s life ultimately leads to unexpected fulfillment and authenticity.
