We Call It Fall
James Fierro, author
Paris Bellum returns to Chicago following the first football game of his sophomore year. The unexpected success of his freshman season at the University of Lake Shore caught the eye of his home city, and now the nineteen-year-old quarterback must navigate young fame, as well as the dangerous influences that come along with it. Paris takes us on a dark spiral through the seedier side of contemporary Chicago and a haunting exploration into the psyche of the Millennial generation. A generation made up of children so afraid of showing vulnerability that they would rather hide beneath permanent facades and self-medication than truly expose themselves to the collapsing world around them.
- "A millenial "Less Than Zero" that grabs your attention and never lets go. Seductive and insightful, "We Call it Fall" is a great debut novel. I'll be reading his future books!" -DLC
- " "We Call it Fall" dives deep into the social construct and brutally honest psyche of a modern day millennial. It reveals the ugly truth behind a generation that has learned to keep their true feelings buried behind a facade. Holding in pain and not being able to talk about it, leads this generation to substance abuse and shallow relationships. The book is both relatable to it's targeted generation and a good explanation to the generation who raised them. I highly recommend this book! But make sure you look good when reading it, because you'll be looking into a mirror page by page." -Mike F
