Description

Tom Curren set a goal to move up and away from his working class roots and into the white collar world whose lifestyle he had for so long admired. Struggling against the odds he found a crack and worked his way in, the charmed life that he had sought seeming to be finally laid bare before him. Opening this door shut another though, the good friends and reliable relationships of his past inadvertently pushed aside. When his new life is shaken up and his path and goals made more murky, which way will he turn? What option would bring him the satisfaction and true sense of self that he has been craving? Is what he gave up better than what he had been taught to idealize? Is going backward giving up?show more

About Robert a Wern

Robert A. Wern is a lifelong Connecticut resident who currently lives in Fairfield with his family. Permitted at ten year's old to sit astride his Uncle Bob's pristine Triumph T-140 while visiting his family in England, Robert began a love affair with British motorcycles. Finally able to purchase his own Triumph years later, a "bitsa" 1965 T100 Roadster, his personal collection has grown as finances and luck have allowed. His current collection includes this Triumph, a 1942 BSA WM20, and of course a pearl white 1971 Norton Commando. A proud shade tree mechanic, he has yet to purchase a running machine. Through hours spent wrenching on his classic machines and trips to car shows throughout the northeast he hopes to indoctrinate his young son into the culture of grease and oil. Robert is a 1996 graduate of Wilton High School in Wilton Connecticut and graduated with honors from SUNY Purchase College in 2003.show more
