Dissatisfied Me: A Love Story

Reminiscent of John Irving, this is a novel with heart and humour and its wackiness is utterly charming. Get dissatisfied! 


Rick Duncan (please don’t call him Dickey) is turning 50—tomorrow. On the eve of his birthday, alone in his mother’s basement, he finds himself with time to think. From the death of Santa to his collection of nocturnal dreamgirls and real-life dating disasters, Rick can’t seem to pinpoint a season of solace in his dissatisfied existence.

And tonight, as he watches a grainy Scottish Rot video, Rick meanders through each episode of the past half-century, marking the key moments of his unsated misadventures, reminding himself that this journey is a love story.

Sort of.
