ANY ROAD WILL TAKE YOU THERE by David W. Berner is Released in Paperback and e-BookANY ROAD WILL TAKE YOU THERE by David W. Berner is Released in Paperback and e-Book
by BWW News Desk - Oct 10, 2014

'Any Road Will Take You There: A Journey of Fathers and Sons' by David W. Berner is now available in trade paperback and e-book editions from book publisher Dream of Things. 'Any Road Will Take You There' tells the story of middle-aged father's search for meaning at mid-life-a search that takes him on a five-thousand-mile road trip with his sons and his best friend. Recently divorced and uncertain of the future, Berner rereads the iconic road story-Jack Kerouac's On the Road-and then heads for the highway to rekindle his spirit. However, a family secret turns the cross-country journey into an unexpected examination of his role as a father, and compels him to look to the past and the fathers who came before him to find contentment and clarity, and to celebrate the struggles and triumphs of being a dad. 'Any Road Will Take You There' ($14.00 trade paperback, $2.99 e-book, Dream of Things, 242 pages, ISBN 9780988439092) is available from Ingram Book Company and from Dream of Things (dreamofthings.com). Praise for 'Any Road Will Take You There' Winner: Book of the Year, Chicago Writers Association. 'Full of humor, vulnerability, and grace.' - Scott Whitehair, Chicago's This Much is True 'A thoughtful, touching, and at times heartbreaking account of the struggles of fatherhood, career, marriage, and the death of a parent.' - David Katzman, A Greater Monster 'Jack would have loved this story!' - Michael Robinson, The Kerouac Project, Orlando, FL.
