About this title

Synopsis:

The moral agony America now suffers is vividly portrayed in this highly provocative novel of one mans search for personal redemption.

The collapse of family, the struggle for social equality, the hunger for personal value in a world where values have maddeningly broken down strain individual conscience to the breaking point. In that darkness of the soul, salvation is still possible.

The Hollow Man is the story of a successful San Francisco business man sliding along on the surface of life, emotionally bankrupt, unwilling to and unable to relate to his wife and children, his life in the suburbs or to find any meaning in his work. Then one day, stuck on the Bay Bridge in early morning traffic, he has the opportunity to prevent a woman from leaping to her death and doesnt. This ultimate inaction spins his life around and changes it forever.

About the Author:

RICHARD DOKEY was born in the Great Central Valley of the Golden State, received his degree at Berkeley and now lives in the country outside of Stockton, California, where he writes full-time and teaches several classes in philosophy at San Joaquin College.

An avid traveler and fly fisherman, he has wandered the world searching for Salmo trutta, which, he believes, is as elusive a creature as himself. He takes particular joy in catching and releasing trout on flies he has tied himself, believing that letting a trout go after having captured it is much like freeing a story from his mind once he has written it. He has hunted trout in places far removed as Alaska, New Zealand, Chile and Montana, where he has spent part of each summer for the past twenty years.

Dokey's stories have appeared in dozens of leading literary reviews around the country, have won prizes and are frequently reprinted in nationally distributed anthologies and textbooks. Collections of his stories have been enthusiastically reviewed in newspapers, periodicals and professional journals from coast to coast.
