A stunning debut reminiscent of Joshua Ferris’ Then We Came To An End, Zach Wyner’s What We Never Had is a fresh and interesting new voice in American literary fiction.
I’m very excited to announce that my first novel, What We Never Had, is being published by Rare Bird Books.
It’ll be out September 13.
From the press release:
Meet Josh, a paragon for the modern postcollegiate. He has a job with no upward path, and a dysfunctional relationship with his ex. Through his work with teenagers, he begins to find definition through the haze, gradually discovering purpose and a measure of self-respect. After two shiftless friends take up residence in his apartment, using his couch as a podium to rail against the world, he takes stock of who he is versus who he wants to be. And when his troubled ex finds herself in real danger, Josh can’t resist the allure of playing the savior, but now he may have a little wisdom on his side.
