Synopsis: IN A NUTSHELL: 

Economic crisis in middle-class America. Real people. Real stories. Real issues. Complete with commentary, historical/comparative economic analysis and statistics, helpful resources, and philanthropic programs. 
Although Casualties of the (Recession) Depression is about middle-class America, the experiences narrated in this book, along with the issue of recession, hunger, joblessness, homelessness... are experiences and issues that have no geographic boundaries. They are global. Especially in today's world economy. Therefore, this book is applicable everywhere. As I write on the front cover: "They could be you. They could be me. They could be anyone."

From the Author: What is unique about Casualties of the (Recession) Depression?

Originally, the intention was to write a collection of short stories, based on the real life accounts of middle-class men and women who had been (and who continue to be) adversely affected by this prolonged economic downturn.

After learning about all their tribulations and triumphs, I decided that their stories would have more impact if portrayed in short vignettes or scenes.  These snapshots in words capture the essence, and the rawness, of their experiences.  As a reader, you get a feel for what it's like to ― as Atticus Finch (in Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird) says ― "climb into his skin and walk around in it."  In doing so, the reader may identify with/relate to or gain insight from their experiences.

The vignettes present a canvas of scenes ― ranging from sweet-to-bittersweet-to-bitter, from the manic uncertainty of not knowing what to do, to the tenacious pursuit of a "Plan B"... and, of course, emphasizing the point that humor, hope and faith often help to smooth out the kinks and put things in perspective.

The vignettes are categorized by year ― from 2006 to the first quarter of 2013. An introduction, with economic and political commentary, to each of the years sets the historical, socio-economic and political scene  ― thus giving the reader some context.

Casualties of the (Recession) Depression is not an economic treatise or a doctoral dissertation. It is a very evocative, mince-no-words commentary that simply seeks to highlight the human condition as relates to the economic crisis that, like a bad cough, has proven difficult to shake off.
