Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The year is 1994, and young intrepid New Yorker Jake Castile heads to the University of Michigan to begin his college career. But friendship soon gives way to infatuation, and Jake becomes increasingly uncomfortable with its implications. Completely overwhelmed by the torture stemming from his unrequited feelings, his emerging homosexuality, and his struggles with college life in general, Jake returns home to quietly end his own life.

Luckily, fate steps in, and Jake refocuses his life by moving to another college, but life continues to sideline his plans. Renewed by his second chance, Jake refocuses on his studies at another college, this time in Arkansas. He finds himself in one unbelievable situation after another. Each decision that Jake makes seems to be the wrong one-leading to illicit activities, vehicular calamities, and the occasional international debacle.

But every one of those ill-fated decisions drives Jake to a fortuitous meeting in an ordinary Manhattan bar on an ordinary winter's night. That evening, his life irrevocably changes when he encounters an enigmatic stranger, who, unbeknownst to Jake, will open his eyes to some of the most outlandish encounters he has ever experienced. Collegiate Maneuvers is a unique coming-of-age story that resonates with the yearning that we all feel when searching for our true selves. Will Jake finally find the love and acceptance his heart has longed for?
