The Point of Escape: A 4-Hour Novel

By J.F. Hussey

General fiction, Comedy & satire | Paperback, eBook


Wanna escape? Meet Jerrod Beams, human cog. He's not even a piece of the machine. Just a piece of a piece. After 25 years as a government wage-slave, he's just spinning in place. Every day, he commutes from his nice house to his good job and knocks off another of the 14,000 workdays of a federal career. Two mindless hours on the road every day, unrelieved by nine mindless intervening hours in his cubicle. He lives the nightmare life of the blandly comfortable, where his quiet desperation is silent even to his own ears. Until he reads The Book: Timothy Ferriss' The 4-Hour Work Week. This entrepreneurial self-help book forces him to examine his life. He realizes to his horror that not only is he miserable, but he cannot define his dream life. He just knows he needs Out! Join Jerrod as he awakes from the nightmare of cubical-dwelling suburban conformity, escapes 9-to-5, and reclaims his birthright to happiness. And while you're reading and fantasizing about your own escape plans, look for info and updates about upcoming projects at www.jfhussey.com.

In his brief sojourn on this mortal coil, J. F. Hussey has sailed the Caribbean, skied the Andes, sipped Champagne in Reims, swum with sharks, beaten Army, earned a Ph.D. and fathered multitudes. A man of letters and changer of diapers, he lives in suburban Maryland with his five children, where he rises well before the sun to pound – lovingly – on his keyboard before the chaos that is daylight ensues. His writing reflects his wide interests and his abiding concern for the way modern life can crush the joie out of any vivre, and celebrates the heroic lengths to which some will go to reclaim their birthright to happiness.
