Douglas Brunt - Trophy Son

Upcoming Event
Thursday, June 15, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Part fairy tale and part cautionary tale, Brunt’s third novel follows the life of a tennis prodigy from early promise to full stardom. Driven by personal ambition and shaped by coaches, Anton Stratis lives the dream of professional tennis. But behind his pride in his spectacular athletic achievements lies the unsettling sense that something is missing. Has he sacrificed too much for his sport? Brunt, former CEO of Authentium, Inc., and the author of The Means and Ghosts of Manhattan, gives a vivid picture of life on the professional tennis tour, with its glory, drama, egos, and adoring fans. But his novel also shows the toll this takes on the players and their families. Brunt will be in conversation with his wife, Megyn Kelly, author of Settle for More.
