Recession. Unemployment. Student loan debt. Moving back home. This is the rude "welcome to adulthood" that college graduate Michael Reilly is striving to come to terms with-just like so many other Millennials. Now living with his father and stepmother, the only work he can find is a part-time retail job at the local mall. With few prospects, a failed romance and nothing but time on his hands, alcohol is fast becoming his only source of comfort. When his older brother is called back up to serve a third tour of duty in Iraq, Michael heads down to New Jersey to say goodbye-possibly for the last time-hoping to send his brother off with a wild weekend party. But his growing depression and frustration with his situation lead to dramatic and unexpected confrontations with his past-and his uncertain future. "Take a road trip with Michael Reilly, the Holden Caulfield for today's disillusioned Millennials. Slip Sliding Away vividly portrays a young poet's risible & poignant post-graduate launch into life (a four-letter word), aided and abetted by family situations, sex, booze, and rock & roll." - Kaye George, author, "Eine Kleine Murder," the "Imogene Duckworthy" series and "Death in the Time of Ice" "Sean Mulcahy's debut novel is a hard-driving story fueled by the angst and honesty of Michael Reilly, a native New Jersey Millennial stuck in Vermont with his father and stepmother. Mulcahy presents a candid and distressing view of the pressures faced by new adults who played by the rules, only to discover that current economic and political realities no longer value those efforts." - James M. Jackson, author, "Bad Policy" and "Cabin Fever"
