TriburbiaBook - 2012
With an unflinching eye, Triburbia explores Tribeca, Manhattan, a neighbourhood synonymous with western affluence, in which an artists' community has been overrun by the faux-bohemian haunts of those made staggeringly wealthy by the world of finance. Thrown together by circumstance, a group of fathers - a sound engineer, a sculptor, a film producer, a writer, a career criminal - meet each morning at a local cafe after the school run. Over the course of a single year, we learn about their dreams deferred, their secrets and mishaps, their passions and hopes, as they confront terrible truths about ambition, wealth and sex. Seen through the eyes of these men and the women with whom they share their lives, Triburbia shows that our choices and their repercussions not only define us, but irrevocably alter the lives of those we love.
