Rick "Dickie" Duncan is turning fifty. Meh.

On the eve of this mid-century milestone, he finds himself alone in his mother's Ottawa basement, surrounded by gaudy decor and a carpet that hasn't been raked in years. Grabbing some brews and frozen hotdogs, Rick rummages through the clutter that's made up his dissatisfied life.

From the death of Santa to the last days of Scottish Rot, Rick meanders through the decades, mapping his existence amid the pop culture of the '70s to the present day.

Marking key moments of his unsated misadventures and real-life dating disasters, Rick reminds himself that his journey is a love story. Sort of.

Bruce Gordon is the author of Dissatisfied Me: A Love Story(2021, Renaissance), a humorous mock memoir with pop-culture nostalgia woven throughout memory lane. Bruce's love for writing was sparked by the challenge of NaNoWriMo in 2017, where he completed his first draft of his novel. Since then, he's participated in NaNoWriMo each year with the goal of publishing a Dissatisfied Me trilogy. He is currently completing the second book, Dissatisfied Me II: West Coast Larry.By day, Bruce is an IT Manager in the federal government. He lives in the suburbs of Ottawa with his wife Cait, who's also a published author. When he is not working or writing, Bruce enjoys playing guitar, watching superhero movies, and listening to Iron Maiden.
