"How predictable and boring it was to be depressed. He’d heard about it, read about it, been warned about it, and now, right on schedule, he was living it. The source of the depression was no mystery, oldest one in the books…"Summer Farmer, the first short story in White Man's Problems, sets the stage for the honest and heartfelt themes explored in Morris' debut collection. The meeting of two disparate strangers serves as a cleverly crafted examination of the universality of longing, remorse, and purpose.
White Man's Problems is out 8/11/15, featuring stories read by Trey Parker and Matt Stone (South Park, The Book of Mormon), John McGinley (Scrubs), Josh Holloway (Lost), singer-songwriter Pete Yorn, Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting), Sarah Polley (The Sweet Hereafter), and Kevin Morris.

A glance into class society
This is probably not the best Kevin Morris can do. Usually he describes in a precise and analytical way life and human behavior across modern society, but in this case, he did not reach me.
Kevin Morris describes here, what the loss of a child does to two completely different men. The first, a movie producer is single and incredibly rich, the second is married and a simple worker. For a couple of seconds they briefly meet in an elevator and share their grief with a few words
The story is told in a detached way and leaves the reader somehow untouched and with a feeling that he missed something. If there is a point to the story, it is meekly made.
