As a Decade Fades Kindle Edition
As he approaches thirty, Jody Grafton’s career as a singer-songwriter falls apart: he loses his record deal, his money, his fame—even his desire to create new music. While he stares at the rubble of his one-hit-wonder musical career, his mother is diagnosed with lung cancer, his marriage ends abruptly, and Jody starts drinking heavily to deaden his new reality.
When he hasn’t a single reason left to live, he attempts suicide and ends up in a psych ward where he’s prodded with questions he isn’t yet prepared to answer. Amid the tailspin, Jody receives a phone call from his recently estranged girlfriend and she has unexpected news: she’s pregnant.
As a Decade Fades begins with this phone call. As his twenties twilight, Jody Grafton grapples with loneliness, depression, lust, and infatuation while glancing at the mounting wreckage in his rearview. When he can’t fit—or force—the pieces of his life back together, he leaves his native Ohio to search for answers in the most unlikely of places.

I look forward to reading other works from Joshua.
Der Anfang von As a decade fades zieht sich eine Weile. Es dauert einen Moment bis man genug über den Hauptcharakter Jody Grafton erfahren hat, um mehr über ihn wissen zu wollen. Das Buch erzählt das bewegte Leben eines Musikers - von den Anfängen bis zu den 15 Minuten Ruhm und wieder zurück. Dabei ist offensichtlich, dass vieles - wenn nicht gar das meiste - autobiographisch ist. Vor allem diese Frage: Was ist wahr und was erfunden, ist sehr spannend.
I wish there was more fiction by Millburn to talk of. 'As A Decade Fades' was surprisingly good.
