Description

I have developed a detachment from the rest of the human race. I don't fear them. I don't consider myself above them. It's just that I genuinely loathe them. There is no reason. I wasn't abused as a child. There were no traumatic events in adolescence, no heartbreak or rejection in early adulthood. Nothing to account for the person I have become. I shall offer no explanation, no mitigation for what I am. But whatever the reason, I have come adrift from mankind, and that is where I intend to stay. Welcome to Gary Lennon's world. It isn't a cold dead place. You'll like it there. You'll see things his way and you'll want to stay. But Gary's therapist has other ideas. He thinks Gary should get a job, meet people and interact with the real world. Look out, people. Look out, world. "Gary is an anti-hero for our times, Everyman and the Outsider rolled into one, and his zeitgeist will explode off the page and roll down your chin with each mounting episode." John Lake (author, Hot Knife)
