The Pursuit of Other Interests

Jim Kokoris

Charlie Baker, a self-centered, workaholic Chicago ad man, finds himself adrift when he suddenly gets fired from his high-powered job.  At home, Charlie realizes just how disconnected he has become from his family and how hard he has to work to win them back.  At the outplacement firm where Charlie spends his days with other corporate cast-offs, he further realizes what's really important in life. Charlie’s story of self discovery is funny and timely and features an endearing cast of characters.
