The Rungs on the Ladder

| May 25, 2019


The Rungs on the Ladder is a beautifully written novella, glowing with authenticity. In the same vein as Kerouac or Salinger, it is a hopeful narrative that follows an individual through a night out filled with love, pain, anxiety, and depression while trying to figure out who they are and what is really important in life. He navigates his anxious thoughts and severe depression while attempting to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol. It’s only through the kind eyes of an old friend that he finally decides to climb the rungs on the ladder out of the hole he’s been living in and finally begins the search for the happiness that awaits him on the surface of his own sanity.
