Living Halfway

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
