The Listless is a New Adult Fiction novel. In this Americana narrative, the main character, Conor, together with his past musician friends are offered a record deal for their fairly successful but recently defunct band Listless. The first year teacher Conor and the rest of the group, having their own budding obligations, don’t immediately see the value in this brief stint of regression and avoidance of their everyday existences. However, with adult/professional life during a recession looking so bleak and their past dreams so close to realization, they choose to take this one last chance to tour their favorite music venues and play with some of the their favorite bands. Along the way, the band meets a beautiful young journalist who opts to travel with the indiepop rock group and document their sometimes funny and other times awkward jaunt around the East Coast. The story ends in a realization that takes the characters (and reader) right back to the start in this vicarious ride through the cyclical reality we call life.
