The Silver Year
It had been Walter Huxley’s dream to become a rock star and he sacrificed everything to make it come true: a promising future as a physicist, a loving girlfriend, and arguably two people’s lives. However, what happens when you realize your dream was not your own, just an expectation of everyone around you? On his twenty-fifth birthday, this is where Walter finds himself, living in the shadow of his own creation, his stage persona, Quinn Quark. After attempting to destroy Quark and abandon rock n’ roll altogether, Walter finds himself lost and in financial ruin, but surprisingly more famous than ever. But just as he’s on the verge of a mental breakdown—all in view of the public eye, he’s given a birthday gift from a forgotten and unexpected friend, an all-expenses-paid trip to Europe. At first reluctant, he only goes as a means to escape his newfound fame in America, but in the process, meets a cast of strange characters whom will alter his life forever.
