A quiet journey de strength, Chris Bachelder’s Abbott Awaits transforms the normal into the extreme, startlingly depicting the serious and poignant demanding situations of a susceptible, innovative father as he lives his daily American existence.

In Abbott we see a modern day Sisyphus: he's the exhausted father of a full of life two-year previous, the ruminative husband of a pregnant insomniac, and the pressured proprietor of a terrified puppy. faced through a flooded basement, a damaged fridge, a urine-soaked carpet, and a literal snake within the woodpile, Abbott endures the sweetness and hopelessness of every second, frequently whereas considering evolutionary heritage, altruism, or the passage of time.

An expectant father and collage instructor on summer season holiday, Abbott tackles the agonizing chores of every day, laboring for peace in his loved ones and suffering to maintain his daughter fresh and satisfied, all whereas staving off an apprehension of failure as a guardian, or even as a person. As he cleans vehicle seats, forgets to use sunlight block, clips his dog’s nails, attire his daughter out of season, and makes unsuccessful furniture-buying journeys along with his spouse, his brain performs out an unrelenting sequence of paradoxical reflections. Abbott’s pensive self-doubt involves a head at some point in past due June as he cleans vomited raspberries out of his daughter’s automobile seat and realizes: “The following propositions are either real: (A) Abbott wouldn't, given the chance, switch one major section of his existence, yet (B) Abbott can't stand his life.”

Composed of small moments of family ask yourself and terror, Abbott Awaits is an enthralling tale of misadventure, anxiousness, and the typical battles and triumphs of parenthood.
