Imagine a depression-era town where it hasn’t rained for years. A pale rainmaker with other-worldly eyes brings rain to the countryside and mesmerizes the townspeople, but the children begin to disappear one by one. Only young Robert Steelgate is able to resist the rainmaker’s spell and begin the struggle to discover what has happened to his missing brother and the other children.

DESCRIPTION:

At what point in life have you officially not made it?

For Steve, Sophia, Dave, and Brooke, life hasn’t turned out as planned. Rather than easy fame and fortune, these happy-go-lucky teenagers of the 1980′s found young adulthood a mystifying series of dead-end jobs, failed relationships, family scandal, and surging frustration.

Now approaching middle age, all they want is to reverse their gradual alienation from life and one another, reconnecting with their earlier, innocent selves.

But there’s a catch. Before any of them can move forward, they must collectively confront that one outrageous night back in college that first drove them apart, revealing secrets potentially shattering everything they ever were.

Here is Phil Stern’s classic, unabridged novel chronicling the bumpy road many in Generation X took through their 20′s and 30′s. A blend of hard-edged Contemporary Fiction and raw satire, the narrative will resonate quite strongly with anyone who’s struggled to find their way, while also remaining true to themselves.

So if you’ve ever wondered why life is so much harder than you ever dreamed, the promised land always just out of reach, then The Bull Years is an experience not to be missed.
