Journey: If Where You’re Going Isn’t Home
The story of a boy growing up Mormon in America with a dream to play jazz trumpet
By: Author Marketing Experts
Journey is the story of young Shake Tauffler, his dream to play jazz trumpet, and his ten-year journey through the heart of what it is to grow up Mormon in America.
Journey traces his first four years through the ranks of his father’s take-no-prisoners religion and follows him on a second journey, on his own, to a place whose high priests are the negro greats of jazz, men his religion teaches him are cursed but from whose music he learns everything he dreams of being.
“Journey (If Where You’re Going Isn’t Home) is the first book of Max Zimmer’s coming of age trilogy and serves as a solid foundation for what promises to be a superlative series of novels. Zimmer is an exceptionally talented writer and storyteller, and his choice of subject matter is both enterprising and enlightening.”
Journey is available in Kindle and paperback, and at your local bookstore.

Called a raw new voice in American fiction by Rolling Stone, Pushcart Prize winner Max Zimmer was born in Switzerland, brought across the Atlantic at the age of four, and raised in Utah in the take-no-prisoners crucible of the Mormon faith. In the summer of 1978 he wrote a long love story that became the genesis for If Where You're Going Isn't Home. He gravitated toward the city, lived and tended bar in Manhattan, met his wife, and eventually moved to the northwest corner of New Jersey, where he settled in to write If Where You're Going Isn't Home from the beginning. The East is now his home. Utah is a place he writes about.
