Unraveled - a novel
GENE MILLER & KAREN KAVNER, authors
Billy Rubin is the living embodiment of every red-blooded American male's fantasy. He has it all - extraordinary athletic abilities, movie star looks, and an arrogant sense of entitlement. That arrogance serves him well until the final, crucial game of the College Baseball World Series when the unthinkable happens. The game he's waited so long to play has somehow already been played and won, thanks to his home run and heroic game-saving catch in the bottom of the ninth. Except, Billy has no memory of any of it. Not the championship game. Not the catch. Not the glory. Billy's perfect world continues to crumble as a disturbing series of confusing and potentially life-threatening events play out. Desperate for answers, Billy enters the cloistered walls of Highwater Acres psychiatric facility, and finds his life altered in ways he could never have imagined. Unraveled is a tale of hope. Of sex, baseball and psychosis. Of the struggle, not only to survive, but to unearth the unspeakable, hidden horrors locked beneath the creaking trapdoors of our unconscious, and emerge triumphant.
