Hes packed everything he owns into a box and thrown it all away. Then, after stealing a bag of clothes and a pocketful of money from his roommate, hes boarding a Greyhound bus to Philly. From Maine to Philly to the Poconos to Charleston and, finally, to Atlanta, Will is in search of fulfillment against the often empty promises of a nine-to-five existence and the so-called American Dream. Will winds his way south until he hits Charleston - an apparent paradise. Its here that he meets people just like him - young and energetic, intelligent and listless - particularly the irrepressible Harry. But after a summer of watching the waves and making drinks in the alien South, Will can no longer pretend that hes found what hes looking for. When he receives a letter from his sister Penny inviting him to live with her in Atlanta, Wills dissatisfaction drives him to accept, with Harry in tow, and soon the pair take up writing restaurant reviews and carousing. Harrys uncompromising view of life and writing, his belief in working toward ones principles, fuels his work on a novel and Wills admiration. Harry, it seems, has found contentment.
