Stephen Measure is an author of unconventional satires and strange stories.
But it is a cosmic truth that although the universe may point the way to your destiny, it is you that must walk (or hop) in that direction. So as Raaj finds his way from the Old part of New Delhi to the United States on a melodramatic quest to prove that one-leggers are better than two-leggers, Mirkha searches for her own path to freedom as she struggles with the unrealistic (and equally melodramatic . . .) expectations of the big old Russian brothers who raised her.
The Hoppers Romanov is a fairytale love story, a satirical look at choice and destiny in the Land of the Free . . .
A child ridiculed for his weight, a son overshadowed by a favored brother, a husband who falls short of his wife’s ambitions, an old man with a broken heart… As Orbits’s life passes, he doggedly pursues a simple dream — a little place in the country where a family might thrive — while wondering if he can ever shake free of the tragedies that seem to define him.
Fatboy Fall Down is the lush and heartbreaking musings of a man trying to understand his place in the world. Though shot through with sadness, Fatboy Fall Down is also full of surprising moments of wry humor, and Rabindranath Maharaj's deft touch underscores the resilience of the human spirit.
Chuck Palahniuk showed himself to be his generation’s most visionary satirist in this, his first book. Fight Club’s estranged narrator leaves his lackluster job when he comes under the thrall of Tyler Durden, an enigmatic young man who holds secret after-hours boxing matches in the basement of bars. There, two men fight "as long as they have to." This is a gloriously original work that exposes the darkness at the core of our modern world.
