Abstract
My thesis is a short story about a man who is struggling to find his true calling in life. Tony Russo is stuck in a rut: he's been working at the same restaurant for twelve years; his co-workers disrespect him, and he finds himself without any real direction in life. When he's forced to run the business that makes him so miserable, Tony finds himself sinking even lower into depression, and resigns himself to a fate as a lifetime restaurant laborer. A visit from an old flame, however, gives him the courage to re-think the opportunities that life has handed him, and allows him to make a decision that could change his life forever.
Description
"Out of the Frying Pan" is a semi-autobiographical short story that I would eventually like to turn into a novel.
