"Waiting for the Man is a strangely engrossing, meticulously written allegory of the present moment." - Douglas Coupland, author of Generation X and Worst. Person. Ever.

A surreal journey of a man who is searching for purpose and for happiness.

JOE, A 36-YEAR-OLD advertising copywriter for a slick New York company, feels disillusioned with his life. He starts dreaming of a mysterious man, seeing him on the street, and hearing his voice. Joe decides to listen to the Man and so he waits on his stoop, day and night, for instructions. A local reporter takes notice, and soon Joe has become a story, a media sensation, the centre of a storm. When the Man tells Joe to "go west," he does, in search of meaning.

Waiting for the Man is a compelling and viscerally emotional story about the struggle to find something more in life, told in two interwoven threads - Joe at the beginning of his journey in Manhattan, and at the end of it as he finds new purpose on a ranch in Montana under the endless sky.
