A rising star at one of the world's preeminent investment banks recounts his power hungry and sex-crazed youth in this outrageous, satirical bildungsroman. From childhood dreams of playing in the NFL to a career on Wall Street playing with middle class pensions--and the schoolyard brawls, love triangles, rock club showcases, and frat house feuds in between--Frank Parker will do whatever it takes to stay on top, however desperate. In Alpha, A.D. Aliwat offers a mesmerizing look inside the mind of a predator as pitiable as he is terrifying and a critical examination of what it takes to really make it in America.
