Overview
Written as a three-part series of novellas, the Underachiever is a fictionalized digital memoir. Part email confession and part fictional autobiography, The Underachiever collapses the romantic comedy into a romantic ridiculosity.
Description
Jooles Mueller (AKA 'The Underachiever') is a dot-com burnout and is tired of his blind commitment to productivity. He’s on a collision course with his heart, pushing him towards adventure, while his mind restrains him towards responsibility. But both are telling him to go to Paris. They just may not be one and the same destination. Taking on what may be the first major achievement of his life, Jooles desperately tries to break free of the underachiever mentality and capture Nymphet—a blond bombshell of mythic proportions—who shattered his ideals of love and purpose in one, seemingly fateful encounter. Along the way he finds only his thoughts can be his undoing. He simply has to be, and success will be his. If only he could remember that. Written as a three-part series of novellas, the Underachiever is a fictionalized digital memoir. Part email confessional, part fictional autobiography and part philosophical quandary, The Underachiever collapses the romantic comedy into a romantic ridiculosity.
