Comic Fiction, Served Black.
With a Spoonful of Mystery & Manners.
“All the things one wants to see lampooned–reality TV, modern academia, the movie industry, California, and pop culture in general–are taken down beautifully in High Concepts. Another reviewer said it had flavors of Evelyn Waugh’s Decline and Fall. To my mind, it’s more of a 21st-century The Loved One. And have fun with all the embedded philosophy and Greek mythology references.”

“If you don’t laugh, there’s something wrong with you.”
