THE ANGEL IN LA is a gripping, nonfiction novel combining absolute realism, humor, and a moving, supernatural twist. While on the tennis tour, Merritt is confronted by an angel in Los Angeles who guides him with a directive. From this point forward Merritt is haunted and oppressed by his heinous nemesis alcohol in a clash of Darkness versus Light.
Although Merritt becomes homeless and a fugitive of the law, he never forgets the angel who tenaciously pursues him and spurs him towards recovery.
If you have ever been curious what really goes through the mind of a chronic alcoholic/addict, then walk with Merritt and get a firsthand peek into the secret underworld of alcoholism, which lured him into boundless depths of assorted self-indulgence beginning in Los Angeles. Unlike the movie LEAVING LAS VEGAS, this true story is about hope and a strong will to live for anyone who feels lost in life.
