dc.description.abstractCounselor is a novel about the most important night of Timothy Dune's life. As our depressed, drug poisoned, alcoholic, and certainly neurotic narrator, Tim struggles to make amends to those he has wronged. Living in a nightmarish future, a decaying world where animals are going extinct, the American Dream is long dead, and his best friends are violent criminals, Tim sees one last chance to change his life. Struggling with the suicide of his first love, Tracy Cameron, and the betrayal of his best friend, Barry Cameron, Tim blames a childhood curse for all his misfortune. After putting Barry in the hospital, Tim begins a quest to make amends, thrusting himself into a night of chaos and na?Ã ve nostalgia, hoping to become a hero by allying himself with a colorful array of valiant villains. His only hope is to survive long enough to put aside his curse, thus taking responsibility for his own actions, before it's too late to have any hope for a life where love is still possible.en_US
