Discontents: The Disappearance of a Young Radical by James Wallace Birch

indie ebook cover

Emory is an aimless millennial who refuses to conform. When his anti-corporate Internet ramblings attract a following, he finds unlikely fame and a sense of purpose. But his fame draws the wrong kind of attention. Forced to take on an assumed identity, Emory finds himself trapped by the words he’s written.

When he meets Fletcher, a rich baby boomer longing for youthful idealism, the two embark on a plan to cause mayhem. But Emory soon thinks someone is trying to get between him, Fletcher, and their plans.

Unsure of who to trust, Emory is suspicious of the people who know him best. Having burned every bridge back to the life he once lived, he must find the strength to face the mistakes of his past if he has any chance at a future.

James Wallace Birch


James Wallace Birch is an award-winning author of short fiction. He has published numerous articles in newspapers, journals and online publications. Discontents: The Disappearance of a Young Radical is his debut full-length book.

James is from Northern Virginia, just outside the U.S. capital. James is best known for the cult classic novel, Discontents: The Disappearance of a Young Radical. The book is based on his experiences surrounding the underground activist movement in Washington, DC in the late 2000s. His writing has been described as smart, insightful and poetically bittersweet.

Discontents is about the disappearance of James's old high school friend, Emory Walden, a political agitator and notorious graffiti artist who became a counter-culture icon and was hunted by the U.S. Government. In the summer of 2011, James received a letter from Emory asking him to publish Emory's account of what happened. The rest is history.

James enjoys coffee, late 90s and early 2000s ska and punk, and contemporary and twentieth century fiction. His favorite book is: Coming up for Air by George Orwell.
