The Papaya King
"An eccentric outsider is baffled by contemporary Manhattan in this engrossing second novel" by Adam Pelzman. —Kirkus Reviews Bobby Walser’s tragic childhood has left him a man frozen in time and mired in a world of his own making—one that has little in common with reality. Genteel and old-fashioned, his manners and habits are more suited to an aristocrat from a Chekhov play than to a young man on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Haunted by his failure to live up to the legacy of his great father, Walser’s sense of ineffectuality is compounded when he suffers a series of deflating professional setbacks. He’s baffled by the people around him, and his only solace is the hope of a romance—conducted via handwritten letters—with a mysterious woman who may not even exist. As his despair with twenty-first century life reaches a breaking point, Walser bristles at a newly constructed sculpture that represents everything he loathes about these times. Realizing that he has more to care about—and fight for—outside himself, he marches toward a final showdown with this towering symbol of oppressive technology. "This is another entrancing, deeply memorable offering from Pelzman … Devilishly sharp social commentary." —Kirkus ReviewsShow book

"Cosmic Fever is inventive, a barrage of creativity — and draws on science in its fictional crafting. A great example of the genre." –Dr. J Reads Imagine waking up one morning and learning that scientists have discovered the Theory of Everything – one simple, elegant equation that unifies all matter, time, and purpose in the universe. How would humanity change? How would you change? And what if soon after, the trumpeted theory was proven false and scientists were forced to issue an embarrassing retraction. Welcome to the zany, satirical world of Cosmic Fever, where in the span of a few short weeks humanity yo-yos from its usual petty squabbling to global harmony – and back again. Was anything learned from the rare interlude of cosmic bliss? The answer is yes, sort of. And the world finds out just how much in a surprising climax that makes perfect sense to anyone who believes everything is connected in some strange and wonderful loop, as mysterious and kooky as life itself.Show book
