Being Invisible

by Thomas Berger

Fred Wagner thought his newfound ability would bring big opportunities, but some special powers aren’t as useful as they appear to be.

Advertising copywriter Fred Wagner lives a mundane existence, dreaming of being a novelist but making scant progress on his first literary effort. His career has stalled and his personal life is falling to pieces, but everything seems poised to change when, one day, Fred realizes he can will himself in and out of visibility.

A world of possibilities seems finally within reach—that is, until Fred learns that invisibility isn’t the panacea he hoped it would be.

Filled with humor and pathos, Being Invisible perceptively examines the life of a struggling writer and the power each of us has to change our own lives.
