Description

One Day the Weatherman is the story of Lucas Neary, a young musician coming of age in the 1970's and 80's. From the onset, Lucas is forced to deal with the unexpected death of his older brother, his odd and emotionally unavailable mother, and his suddenly absent father, while making the painful and insightful journey to becoming a man. Moving and often hilarious, the story follows Lucas through high school and college as he yearns to reunite with the father who abandoned him and tries to come to terms with his absence. Although told mostly through the eyes of Lucas, the story also makes unexpected pit stops into the minds and lives of his parents, giving the reader a gestalt of the panoramic life Lucas lives and the reasons why his life takes the turns it does. One Day the Weatherman examines the notion of coincidence and fate and the role they may or may not play in our everyday decisions and lives. Heartwarming, sometimes comedic, and yet painfully real, One Day the Weatherman explores the "quest" and our journeys through life-how what you want may not be what you were looking for in the first place.or maybe you had it all along and never realized it. Either way, it's like the Rolling Stones said: "You can't always get what you want, but sometimes you get what you need."show more
