Any Road Will Take You There

Posted by Administrator on 10/4/2014

Any Road Will Take You There by David W. Berner released in trade paperback and e-book editions by Dream of Things 

A memoir about the lessons we learn from our fathers, the lessons we pass on to our sons, navigating mid-life crises, and hitting the road 

 Downers Grove, Ill. – Any Road Will Take You There: A Journey of Fathers and Sons by David W. Berner is now available in trade paperback and e-book editions from book publisher Dream of Things. 

Any Road Will Take You There tells the story of middle-aged father’s search for meaning at mid-life—a search that takes him on a five-thousand-mile road trip with his sons and his best friend. Recently divorced and uncertain of the future, Berner rereads the iconic road story—Jack Kerouac’s On the Road—and then heads for the highway to rekindle his spirit. However, a family secret turns the cross-country journey into an unexpected examination of his role as a father, and compels him to look to the past and the fathers who came before him to find contentment and clarity, and to celebrate the struggles and triumphs of being a dad. 

Any Road Will Take You There ($14.00 trade paperback, $2.99 e-book, Dream of Things, 242 pages, ISBN 9780988439092) is available from Ingram Book Company and from Dream of Things (
