Johnny's Getting-It Apprenticeship
You are motherless, neglected, abused, poor. You are a child. You are dyslexic, borderline autistic, contemptuous of authority in any form, and asocial. Life is a cruel reality made by others, and a surreal fantasy made by you. Do you ever learn to tell the difference? Do you conquer, or be conquered by, loss, envy, hatred, prejudice, cruelty, violence, apathy, and greed? This is a story about love, sensuality, sexuality, spirituality, innocence, caring and empathy. This is a story about someone growing and trying to transcend his surroundings, and comprehend a priori concepts such as truth and beauty. This novel is in the "Unreliable Narrative" genre of literature, and is a unique blend of classic literary styles ubiquitously meshed with modern pop culture, and a playfully irreverent handling of the modern English language.
