by Aaron Cutler
Roderick Conroy finds himself in a quandry. He has rejected his talent as an artist, but in denying its existence he has driven himself into a waking dream world in which he attempts to control people and events, usually with disastrous results.
In this dark tale of misguided love, wrenching betrayal, twisted revenge, and unexpected discovery, once manís exploration of himself and his potential leads him through black truths to a shattering climax. Hit men, coffee shops, an art teacher and a fire-breathing midget all converge to form a singular story of love won, lost and redeemed Ė poignant, powerful, and very, very funny.
