Roadwork - Stephen King, Richard Bachman This is about a guy who has had too much bad news and flips. His son died. He can't get over it. His relationship with his wife isn't the best. Road construction taking away his work and home. The man makes wrong decisions, but everyone seems to not be a good person in this story. Puts me in the mind of some real life situations so it's pretty much a downer. Makes everything seem pointless.
