Review - 

Off Broadway is author William A. Glass' second book. While a very different story line, it is again full of dark emotions, an alcoholic father, a dysfunctional family and betrayal.  It follows David Knight's life journey in which the major focus his work life. His marriage only plays a minor part. 

I didn't get the feel there was a strong plot being followed in this story. Instead the author has chosen to have readers follow David as he moves through each day, letting us see how he perceives these experiences through his eyes.  He is a workaholic whose personal life  is a mess and definitely takes second place. He drinks too much. His family disconnected. He changes jobs on the promise of a better future, only to find the new company has secrets. Along the way his relationship with his wife sours, comes together again briefly, then sours for good He faces two huge betrayals - one work related and one personal. 

The story ends just as a new, better future opens up, so it does end on a hopeful note.  However, given his track record, I was left wondering if this new positive direction would pan out, or if he would again face betrayal and failure. It would be interesting to know.
