New To The Game: Mark Schoedl Explores Authenticity And Escapism In New Novel

His latest work is a collection of 16 short stories that challenges readers to seek out the root cause of unhappiness in their lives and try to do something about it—even if it turns their world upside down

Mark Schoedl is challenging readers to live their most authentic lives, in his latest novel titled New To The Game. The recently published collection of 16 short stories explores the conflicts and unhappiness behind the masks people wear to fit into society.

Mark agrees that it is impossible to try to escape one's fate and posits that people would be better off just being themselves rather than pretending to be something they are not. In his new book, the author mixes relationships and sports/Events with a tinge of 'Loss' to enable each character to either change for the better or to give into the swarming crowd to hopefully save face.

New To The Game provides its readers with an array of various character points of view that would affect their lives both positively and negatively. For the most part, the book challenges them to stand on their own two feet; ultimately compelling them to answer to their failings and the slew of queries and hidden agencies thrown their way.

In one such story, a.middle-aged couple ultimately realizes they cannot (won't) change their lost ways, even finding some abhorred form of comfort in their world fallen from grace. They are now shielded from their family and friends with no one to disrupt their hindered flight. At least they still have each other to lean on away from the Public Eye, that unforgiving Crowd.

“We must find out why we are so unhappy and try to do something about it even if our whole private worlds will seem to have turned upside down.” - Mark Schoedl.

New To The Game is currently available for purchase and can be accessed via the following link:

About The Author

Mark Schoedl currently resides in sunny Southern California; however, he still harbors a fond affection for his formative and young adult years growing up in Southeastern Wisconsin. Suburban Menomonee Falls, a northeastern Milwaukee suburban village, provides him with fond memories of rolling hills and open stretches of land that rest on its outskirts. The Kettle Moraine and marshy soil remain with him wherever he travels. He draws inspiration from the young Scot John Muir who grew up on a Wisconsin farm as he too would reflect on the sprawling wooded copses that surrounded the family’s cultivated land. As a middle-aged man struggling to survive in metropolitan Los Angeles, Mark has learned to work and play heedless of the daily news reports and Hollywood crown that clutters the evening airways.
