Effect, the debut non-fiction novel by gravity sports writer, Johnathon
Allen, traces the origins of extreme sports by following the (mostly
true) story of one person's search for identity through the pursuit of mountain
biking, skiing, and bungee jumping as he attempts to solve the mystery of
his past. Joey doesn't know his real name, his parents, or the source of
his true origins. Compounding this identity crisis is the fact everywhere
he goes, people think he's someone else. He is the epitome of a generation
that has been cut free from the past into an unknown and potentially hazardous
future with no map or compass; the first and only American generation to
come of age without facing a major war; the generation they call X.
Doppelganger Effect is the debut non-fiction novel of gravity sports writer/photographer, Johnathon Allen--whose stories have appeared in BIKE, Mountain Bike Magazine, Outside, Wend, and other publications.
