Jay Nussbaum's website

A novel to inspire people to find the true purpose in their life.

A typical day for J.J. Spencer began with a cup of gourmet coffee at his desk in a large Manhattan law firm, and was filled with the expectations of a great future. With his first annual review coming up soon, J.J. was confident his keen work for the firm would be praised all the way to the bank.

But after a sudden surge of compassion during a chance encounter at a diner, J.J. quickly discovers how true it is that no good deed goes unpunished: the aftermath of his generous impulse snowballs and before he knows it, J.J. Spencer has been beaten bloody, arrested, and fired from his job.

His perfect life seemingly over, J.J. decides he must dedicate himself to helping the very people who unwittingly lost him everything. It is through that journey and the surprising battles therein that a new life just might rise from the ashes of the old, and J.J. Spencer has a chance to emerge as the man he always should have been.

This is the story of leaving the comfortable life you know for the unpredictable future that another path might bring. Set in contemporary New York, a young man must decide whether scaling the walls of his shallow existence in search of something more profound will lead to his dreams, or to his ruin.

This is a story that will strike a chord with so many people. Each of us has those voices telling us what we can and cannot be, what we should and should not do and become… I haven't been pulled into a book in this way for some time and I thank you for the experience…we will hand-sell many copies at The Open Book.”
