A humorous and sharply observant look at the journey that is life, The Matt Zander Journals is a thought-provoking novel told through the journal entries of a sarcastic, cynical slacker who, after a life-changing experience, has a good dose of anger at the celebrity worshipping, money hungry, pill-for-everything, dumbed down, psychobabble world we live in.
Gary Denne is an Australian-born writer. In the late 90s, he traveled the world and found himself in Toronto, Canada, where he began a novel based on his own journals and road-trip experiences, written from his alter-ego’s point of view. The Matt Zander Journals is his first novel.

Matt Zander, under-achieving supermarket clerk, wakes in a downtown Toronto hospital after he was shot during a bungled robbery of his boss' luxurious home. As memory of his near-death experience begins to fade, he furiously scribbles down everything he remembers of his journey to the other side. Struggling with his purpose in life, Matt befriends a quiet young loner named Michael, whose dream is to leave the frozen winter landscape of Canada behind for the sun and glamour of Los Angeles. Together they set out cross-country, unaware the road trip will be the defining moment in both their lives.
