Meyer is filled with dread. His fading musical aspirations,
his tyrannical CEO, his ex-wives, his exiting girlfriend,
his elderly father, his beloved and troublesome children,
and his confused and bewildered life all attest to his
conviction that the sky will soon fall on his head. And then
This is the story of a man adrift in anxiety, ill fortune,
and comic mishap, buffeted by the existential and prosaic
concerns that modern life in Los Angeles inflicts. Forty
years old, caught in the netherworld between the reckless
optimism of youth and the resignation of age, Meyer tries to
find handrails and ballast.
Funny, intellectually probing, and poignant, Imperfect Solo
follows the flailing and hapless Meyer as he seeks hope and
redemption while his world unravels around him. Surrounded
by the absurdities of a fading America, the affection of
flawed but well-meaning friends and family, and the
randomness of everyday life, he tries gamely to stay afloat.
He must navigate love lost and found and lost again, the
indignities of aging, the courage to stand up to assholes,
and the search for the perfect sax solo. Will Meyer find
grace? Can he, or we, ever?
