This edgy, compelling novel offers an honest portrayal of the ups and downs of everyday life as experienced by three memorable characters.
Everybody got issues features Avonté Douglas, Ina Sinclair, and Nakia Davidson, three emploees of the successful advertising agency Montaqua Publications. As young, single, and ambitious professionals, their friendship occasionally deteriorates into a vicious cycle of jealousy, gossip, selfishness, and backstabbing. Outside the walls of Montaqua Publications, Avonté, Ina, and Nakia also endure the disappointments and failed expectations of personal relationships that, even when seemingly on the brink of success, prove to be struggles.
In this fast-paced story about friends and coworkers, V. Anthony Rivers deftly conveys the ugly realities of personal and professional relationships. Demonstrating a deep understanding of people -- their ulterior motives, the emotional baggage they inevitably carry, and of course their issues -- Rivers crafts a novel that is as easy to identify with as it is entertaining.
