Postcards. . .And (Please) Buy My Book —Erik Cagle
“Gross Misconduct” contradicts fictional convention that dictates our hero, the protagonist, must change in some meaningful way by the novel’s end. Instead, everything around him changes. That’s all I’ll give away.
I think you’ll find the price is quite reasonable. This is a fast, accessible read, closer to the sparse short fiction style of Raymond Carver (he made it seem effortless) rather than the dense, literary flow of Margaret Atwood.
It’s meant to be fun, modest and, above all else, brutally honest.
It will never win a Pulitzer Prize, but I think you will find it reading time well spent. A caveat: It’s not for everyone, especially those whose sensibilities are easily upset.
