Problem Contest

Front Cover
Independently Published, Nov 19, 2020 - 216 pages
Modern life is a problem contest and deadbeat freelance writer Al Lamp's adventure in this book looks at this essential argument. Social media connects him to all his friends throughout the bug scare and lockdown. A website called The Rotten Edge pays to host his interviews with rock stars and writers. Dating sites take the place of bars and parties, for the most part. A lost book he read years ago and forgot the name of has predicted many recent global events except the fake alien war that's probably coming next. Are the actions of his obnoxious upstairs neighbors in a building without insulation in southeast Denver analogous to Al's place at the bottom of society's problem contest as a creative artist? When that lost book comes true again in the form of race riots all over the country, Al is forced to confront the racial symbols placed in him by decades of media brainwashing, transcending his tormented life in the basement and ascending finally to a new cheap apartment up the street just before the 2020 election results are called. What will happen next? PULL TAB TO OPEN.
