I was interested to read The Big Picture by Douglas Kennedy. I found myself picking it up at every available opportunity. This is the story of a stressed out Wall Street Lawyer in Manhattan who is married with 2 young sons and very disillusioned with his life. He has always longed to be a photographer and regrets the way his life has ended up. By complete accident (I won’t spoil it) his life turns upside down in a split second and he finds himself on the run and taking on a new identity. Does his dream of having a new life match the reality?
It is also very insightful into the human condition: pride, ambition, discontentment. I think Kennedy writes about these themes extremely well. You won’t be disappointed with this book; it’s very readable and makes you want to keep turning the pages well into the night. Enjoy
