At his twenty five year high school reunion, Harris Greenberg finds out that his class valedictorian has gone missing. In an attempt to run away from his own problems, Harris embarks on a desperate mission to find him. Enlisting the help of old friends, Gordon Lipschitz is found in the most unlikely place, a shell of his former self. The search becomes a journey of self-discovery for four friends whose lives turned out much differently than any of them expected.
Finding Gordon Lipschitz thrusts the reader down the endless rabbit hole of Harris Greenberg’s hilariously entertaining midlife crisis and sends them sputtering into New Orleans; a place of enchantment, hurricanes, healing and best of all, rebirth.

Finding Gordon Lipschitz is a gritty, coming-of-age novel for adults. Harris Greenberg’s search for his long-lost highschool friend is funny, tense, and poignant. The story is an absolute winner.
