A Bridge to Nowhere takes the teaching of moral values out of the pulpit and, for an evening, puts it on a barstool. It's a sinner's side of the story. Years ago, in one of America's great cities, a bridge partially spanned the river flowing through downtown. It went three quarters of the way across the water and then just stopped. Unfinished, it hung there for years. The locals called it "the Bridge to Nowhere" And at the same time, life for Joey was continuous trek across his own bridge to nowhere. What else would you call twenty-five years squandered on the pleasures of a callow youth? The pleasures that are wine, women, and song, or in today's parlance, sex, drugs, and rock n' roll. And today ... well, when it comes to unfinished bridges, the city has finally finished theirs, and Joey has finally stopped trying to cross his. A Bridge to Nowhere is Joey's story. It's a journey through his life, a tale he tells his twin nephews in his favorite nightclub high above his favorite city ... a virtual second home, complete with a marvelous vies, a great band, a fabulous dance floor, and killer carrot cake. It's a story that richchets from the sober observations of the present to the sometimes zany, sometimes sad, adventures of Joey's past. You see, Joey has finally learned the hard lesson that it's often impossible to understand white until you know black, and in the evening's conversation, Joey wants to share that idea. He hopes that his experience, and his regrets, might help keep his two favorite nephews off the on ramp to their own bridge to nowhere. A Bridge to Nowhere is written for young men. Its theme is character formation, and its focus is how and why wise choices are critical to forming healthy relationships with women. However, it is written for a secondary audience, parents, particularly moms, and ESPECIALLY SINGLE MOMS. Simply put, it is a collection of the talks about life and love that dad should have with his son as the boy grows to manhood. Talks a mom may want or need to have with her son ... if dad is absent. Written from a 'light' Judeo-Christian perspective, it is simple, real, and has the grace to leave the judgmental attitude and the opressive harangue in the parking lot for the evening.

Review:

"A Bridge to Nowhere: Memories, Morals, Martinis, and The Myth Of The Promiscuous Man" deftly combines a fictional story with sound Christian teachings which combine to illustrate through the medium of story telling, the talks fathers should have with their sons as their boys transition into manhood. Although written for appeal to young men, the author's writing style and the novel's content also make it an invaluable tool for single mothers needing a way to communicate with their teenage sons on the issues of responsibility and respect in their relationships with women. Very highly recommended, especially to members of the Christian community, "A Bridge to Nowhere" is not a heavy handed morality treatise, but an engaging, superbly written work of 'creative fiction' that is as entertaining and inspirational as it is informed and informative."
