The Things of Man

Vince Wheeler

Winner Silver Medal for Best Midwest Fiction, 2017 Independent Publisher Book Awards.

Brad Manford, a successful attorney and loving husband and father, has a dire secret: He used to be someone else. And his memories of that former life? Gone. Replaced, inexplicably, by false recollections from a life he never lived.

Who, really, is Brad Manford? And what was he doing during those forgotten years? In his debut novel, Vince Wheeler spins a story of surreal self-discovery, leading, ultimately, to an unimaginable truth.

"The Things of Man is a surprisingly captivating novel. It’s an interesting hybrid, mixing general fiction with science fiction in an unexpected and wonderful way... [T]he ending of the story is leagues away from where you suspect you’ll end up when first starting the novel."
