Field of Periphery
Martin McCullough escapes one literary trap only to get caught in another, far more dangerous business, as he chronicles the demise of his favorite subject. The writer who could ruin careers can also advance others, and he saves his best prose for the final installment, an act of contrition in the form of a tribute to his fallen star. More
Martin McCullough is an accomplished journalist living in fear of his own irrelevance. His latest escape involves writing a more extensive story, a book, on a fallen sports star – an athlete, not unlike himself in his youth, who had a promising career until a random tragedy stripped it all away. The journalist turned author discovers the book’s success is also fleeting and soon he is struggling with his own cycle of rise and fall, leaving him in fear of his own humanity.
