Description Randall Baker finds his lfe enriched by new beginnings. His story from small town Nebraska to the rigors of international music success is compromised only by the fact that he hasn't gained any life affirming knowledge through his endeavors. Now, at age thirty-three, Randall finds himself in a California State Penitentiary without much knowledge about how he was become the person he is. From Infynity Nick Linde's unique voice makes this book more like a screenplay. His style is unperfected, yet beautifully delivered in this tale of Randall Baker and his life-reflection quest. This book has been compared to Bret Easton Ellis' Less than Zero not only for the similarities in surface over depth, but also because both authors were very young when writing. The Speed of Life is a terrific first work from full-time student, part-time writer Nick Linde.
