He writes letters to a dead girl John Lenza an aspiring writer from Brooklyn New York hasn’t written a novel a play or any other potentially publishable project His obsession with his part in the death of his best friend Stephanie in high school is a metaphorical brick wall blocking him from a fulfilling life Lenza’s struggles to reconcile his guilt from the past and to enjoy the present sets the tone for Brooklyn native and playwright Richard Fulco’s emotionally charged debut THERE IS NO END TO THIS SLOPEBy day John Lenza sells textbooks to New York City schools Like a 21st century Willy Loman Lenza drifts letting things happen to him rather than figuring out w. I love this book I do not love John Lenza the protagonist because as the title suggests he never stops his downward slide He s the kind of guy who never gives himself a break nor can he accept the favor from someone else He carries around uite a heavy load and has never learned or perhaps likely refuses to learn how to give it up The weight he hauls around with him even though originally based in love has turned into something not very lovely at all It seeps and penetrates his thoughts actions and very being Life is frustrating enough but Lenza s habits push this frustration to the limits of his soulRichard Fulco has created an extraordinary character from an ordinary man The book made me think of The Stranger by Camus and the inexorable slide of a Greek tragedy nothing to be done but to watch the spool unwindHaving set the story in New York City a place Fulco knows well allows for John Lenza to easily meet a cache of characters helpful and not so helpful if he would only allow himself to take advantage of certain situations but then of course the slope would have come to an endHighly recommended

review There Is No End to This Slope

There Is No End to This Slope

Hat he really wants from his work life and his relationships At Cobble Hill High School he meets his future wife Emma Rue an impulsive alcoholic At a “writerly” coffee shop near his new digs in Park Slope he meets Teeny an overweight gay man who mines Lenza’s life for his own material Richard a homeless man becomes a voice of reason and a roommate while Pete the landlord worries mostly about whether Lenza is truly taking special care of those beautiful wood floors in the apartment and when Lenza loses his job if the rent will be paidAt one point in THERE IS NO END TO THIS SLOPE John Lenza describes himself as intelligent perhaps too intelligent to do anything Fo. I really enjoyed this book John Lenza could be any one who is in a dead end job with a dead end life By making little or no choices he is making choices on what is in store for him throughout the book I truly enjoyed the real feel of the characters and the scenario It was like I was there sitting on the stoop across the street watching John s pathetic life unfold before meWell worth picking up and reading I look forward to novels by Richard Fulco in the futureI did receive this book for free from the author for an author discussion group I am glad I did this may not have been something I would have normally looked at twice but I am so glad I read it

R him and many of the characters in Fulco’s novel it is hard to find a way to navigate the day to day while nurturing a sensitive and creative spirit Does John Lenza deserve to be tortured by something that happened so many years ago Or is the event really a safety net that he allows to prevent him from finding out what his true creative potential might beThrough deeply wrought characters and scenes that mirror the angst everyone faces as life happens and years pass Fulco touches on a fundamental issue that drives great artists to self destruct Ironically when Lenza has wrung all he can out of his pained self it may be the mundane day to day that ultimately saves hi. I shouldn t be writing that this is a fun book to read considering John s struggle through breakups bad decisions unhappy friendships and a lousy job but it is fun if the type of fun that makes one wince while reading wanting to know what s next on the character s horizon I liked Richard Fulco s ability to draw the main character as flawed but loveable relatable and yet exacerbating I found myself at once rooting for John and wanting to smack him in the face so real he was to me as if he was an old friend I kept around just to hope he d figure it all out You won t want to put this book down and if you have an appreciation for pop culture New York and an enduring test of the human spirit you ll love it as much as I did
