The book

“I have to do something meaningful with my life. I fear to face death and realise that my existence was for nothing, but first I need to be free. Goodbye London, goodbye big job, goodbye my love.”

It’s been decided, Luca has to kill his ego. He is a young advertising executive who has everything that someone is supposed to want nowadays; the girl, the status, and a wealthy life in London, but he hates himself for having become a slut of capitalism.

Panic attacks and suicidal thoughts push him to look for a change, leaving his shallow life behind to embark on a journey into the unknown. It begins with a visit to his old-time friend Jacques, an artist who lives a worry-free, weed-fuelled life in Berlin. Maybe he has some answers.

Funny yet profound book. If you are a Millennial that works in a large multinational, you will find a bit of yourself reflected in this novel. If you aren’t, you will see what it feels like being one. What a great start for an independent author!
