Abstract:

Meet Terence Newcombe, a "literature professor with nothing original or relevant to teach. A homeowner, taxpayer, respected member of society deserving of nothing but contempt. A hoaxster, a con man, a grifter. Being a stand-up guy was my shell game. Friend? Husband? Mentor? Father? The hand is quicker than the eye." Through relentless wordplay, unflinching introspection, and spot-on critique of academia with all its pedagogy and convoluted language, Randall Silvis spins a bittersweet tale of lost hopes and nearly grasped second chances. Narrator Terence "Nuke" Newcombe revels in self-loathing, short circuits his synapses, then finds himself unexpectedly sober, with that elusive second chance not so far out of reach.
