9780967815305: Family Matters

Family Matters examines the disjunct between upward-mobile successful technocrats, living in enviable suburban comfort, and their nearby blue-collar counterparts, many haunted by a sense of personal insignificance as lifelong jobs are eliminated or disappear altogether. From computer-savvy Barry Byrnes, forced into early retirement, to union leaders Jamie McClintock and Paul Doran, struggling to save a century-old industry in the heart of the picturesque Chesapeake Bay area, we collide against mutually opposed economic and family concerns. The effect is profound cultural frac- ture, the central concern of the novel.

About the Author:

Most recently, Dolores C. Moses spent a dozen years producing and helping direct Investor Communications for a well-known Los Angeles real estate investment firm. She come to this position from a sharply contrasting background of nearly two decades of high school and college teaching of English and Creative Writing, twice heading up Departments and on occasion publishing articles in educational journals. Previous to her academic career, she managed an advertizing copy department at a Fairbanks, Alaska TV station. Graduate of Antioch College in Ohio and recipient of an M.A. degree in Creative Writing from the University of Iowa, Moses and her husband have both enjoyed and endured living in a dozen states from coast to coast across the nation, through fat times and thin, garnering the cornucopia of impressions and personalities drawn upon in Family Matters.

Review:

"Exceptionally well written, informative, candid, and comprehensive, Family Matters is unique, highly recommended reading..." -- Wisconsin Bookwatch/Midwest Book Review

"[The] novel examines the impact that the topsy-turvy employment world of 'downsizing' has on a family..." -- Cecil Whig, Elkton, MD
