A playful, big-hearted tragicomedy in the Russo/Irving mold, American Corporate chronicles the misadventures of middle-aged Jack Sullivan and his family as they bounce across the country in search of gainful employment, domestic tranquility, and a few people they can trust. It is a story that working parents past, present and future will see as part of their own: the triumphs, the tragedies, the innocent mistakes and the not-so-innocent mistakes, and above all the forgiveness that keeps families together to face another challenge.
American Corporate by Jeb Stewart Harrison is a reminder to us on how corporate world can be toxic and how depending on corporate to make a living would disappoint us one way or another.
Jack Sullivan, the main character in this story, goes through a mid-life crisis as he struggles to provide the necessities for his family. His wife is unhappy with him and cheats him behind his back.
His family is dependent on his dad’s income but that too came to an end soon as his dad runs into financial issues.
The rest of the story brings to an everyday American’s life where most of us struggle to make ends meet. This story is a very good read, considering that my book entitled ‘The Sin of a Fresh Graduate’ will be launched in two week’s time and therefore, I could relate to this book a lot.
A five star!
