Beginning in the summer of 2004, Scott Nadelsona€™s life fell apart. His fiancAce left him a month before their planned wedding for another woman who made her living performing as a drag king. He moved into a drafty attic. His cara€™s brakes went out. He learned that his cat was dying. Over the next two years, hea€™d struggle, with equivocal and sometimes humiliating results, to get back on his feet, in the process re-examining his past to understand his present circumstances. The Next Scott Nadelson: A Life in Progress is a literary self-portrait that revolves around the dissolution of a relationship but encompasses the long process of a young mana€™s halting self-discovery. Exploring episodes from the life of its author/narrator marked by failure, suffering, and hope, as well as literary and cultural influence, the book weighs the things that make us want to give up against the things that keep us going. Though many of the pieces are comic and self-deprecatinga€”some self-laceratinga€”they are above all meditations on the nature of the self and the way it can be constructed through memory, desire, and the imagination. Together they form a larger narrative, a search for fulfillment and identity in a life often governed by fear. With humor and unflinching honesty, Scott Nadelson scrutinizes his life to discover who he is and finds just how elusive such a discovery can be. To read the resulting book is to join him on a personal journey that is thoughtful, surprising, occasionally hilarious, and unapologetically human.I felt sorry for him, being badgered by a woman half his age, who got everything she wanted, who could never be satisfied. ... But then the owner turned, and to my surprise her face was no longer hardened and angry but trembling, streaked with ... Exactly, I thought, as she stormed back to her Subaru and slammed the door.
