Amadeus : A Tour Through the Underbelly of the Beast
A high-powered but restless think tank consultant preparing for a keynote address, Connor leaves his geospatial intelligence conference drunk off of single malt Scotch whisky in search of a late night Spicy Chicken Sandwich. After facing a grim series of circumstances at Wendy's, he meets Amadeus, a homeless tour guide with suspect motives. The two unlikely companions then begin a journey through the underbelly of the beast: forgotten and mysterious areas of downtown. Everything around them was falling apart and somehow the two had to make sense of it. Their conversations, encounters in truth and chance, and the constant whispers of doomsday culminate in an unforgettable ending for Connor.
Connor's story playfully guides the reader through wisdom both ancient and modern, situations both mundane and impossible, and challenges one to find clarity in the midst of paradox and ambiguity. It is a book for the curious mind, the contrarian, and the one who imagines what could be. If you are looking for a book that will make you laugh, give you food for thought, or maybe even change how you see the world, give Amadeus a try.
