Strategies for Success

Strategies for Success traces the fall of Larkin Stride, who is trapped in an acquisitive, high-power life in Cambridge, Massachusetts. As his marriage, life, and career unravel, Larkin desperately reaches for any shred of meaning. Through Larkin’s downward spiral, Strategies for Success offers a wry, hilarious, and twisted take on conventional ideas of success.
