One part social commentary, one part memoir, and all parts perfectly inappropriate, this collection of essays reveals truths about relationships, family, society, and career, as told through the eyes of a struggling singer-songwriter caught between his 1980s childhood and today’s comparative-happiness landscape.
"Heartbreaking as it is hilarious, heartfelt as it is tough, and as much an indictment of the modern self-help ethos as it is a celebration of what the genre is actually aiming for. The journey Alex takes us on is deeply personal, completely original, and 100% worth the price at the door."
- Sean Watkins, Grammy-winning founder of Nickel Creek
“Throughout ‘Living Halfway,’ Alex writes the same way he sings: not always pretty, and his words can tear your heart out of your body. But I forgive him for that, because what he writes is beautiful, and real, and true.”
- Robert Holden, PhD, happiness expert and author of Shift Happens! and Finding Love Everywhere
"Alex Woodard is one of the greatest writers I’ve ever discovered."
- Dr. Wayne Dyer, renowned motivational speaker and #1 New York Times bestselling author
