Owen Prell: Chance to Break

Authors Corner: Local author Owen Prell reads from his novel about winning and losing in the game of tennis — and in life.

Join local author Owen Prell for a reading from his novel, Chance to Break (North Loop Books).

Set during the opening four days of Wimbledon in 2010, when an otherwise ordinary men’s singles match seems incapable of ending, the novel follows the darkly comic travails of Trevor Davis, a former standout junior tennis player whose comfortable Bay Area life has unravelled in the wake of the 2008 subprime mortgage fiasco.

The novel ventures from modern San Francisco and England back to the mid-1970s economic malaise that permeated Trevor’s high school years in Oxford and the dark days of occupied France that defined his parents’ youth.

Chance to Break tells the story of a man’s courage in the face of past failure and present adversity, of trying not to succumb to defeat, even when victory seems lost.
