Starting today and extending through the end of the weekend, you can download the first novel available from Wizard of Monadnock Books FREE! Check it out here!
Can true love survive if ordinary people are hopelessly divided?
Can we banish God with depravity or indifference?
Is the only true recourse to youthful despair intoxicated laughter?
These are the questions posed to the universe by Jay Monaco, his roommate Jackie, and a wild supporting cast of degenerates, pushers, careerists, rock stars, and petty prophets. In this debut novel from the Wizard of Monadnock, Jay is a mid-20s professional working in a cubicle for a large armaments company in a small New Hampshire city seeking answers, a soulmate, and, more than anything else, a way to live. An illegal deal goes down without a hitch, but when a beautiful woman and a mysterious HR representative come to town, Jay finds his world changed forever.
Part black comedy, part love story, part pilgrim’s parable, You’d Guess From Their Cries is a wild romp through the underbelly of America in crisis.
As blogger Tim Donovan has said, “[T]here’s something terrifying and apocalyptic about this small town, filled to the brim with lost souls working dead-end jobs, and cyclical small-town relationships that trap people in a way large cities never really can.”
