Aldo has been so relentlessly unlucky – in business, in love, in life – that the universe seems to have taken against him personally. Even Liam, his best friend, describes him as a well-known parasite and failure. Aldo has always faced the futureMoreAldo has been so relentlessly unlucky – in business, in love, in life – that the universe seems to have taken against him personally. Even Liam, his best friend, describes him as a well-known parasite and failure. Aldo has always faced the future with optimism and despair in equal measure, but this last twist of fate may finally have brought him undone.Theres hope, but not for Aldo.Liam hasnt been doing much better himself: a failed writer with a rocky marriage and a dangerous job he never wanted. But something good may come out of Aldos lowest point. Liam may finally have found his inspiration. Together, maybe they can turn bad luck into an artform.What begins as a document of Aldos disasters develops into a profound story of love lost, found and betrayed- of freedom and incarceration- of suffering and transcendence- of fate, faith and friendship- of taking risks – in art, work, love and life – and finding inspiration in all the wrong places.
