Eric Monsky Releases First Novel: AVERSION
New York native, writer and producer, Eric Monsky's first novel Aversion, is being released by Whiskey Neat Press on July 29th, 2014.Aversion is the compelling, semi-autobiographical journey of Adam Lange's emotionally careening yet humorous outbursts from a whiskey induced haze to healing, all through the lens of the most popular Reality TV show currently airing on television today.
Adam Lange is consumed by resentment and anger and has been since the day his father died painfully in hospice. Desperate for a cure to end his grief, Adam hatches a plan: abandon his home and couch surf to save as much money as possible before quitting his job then travel the world indefinitely. This choice quakes the already turbulent relationship with his mother and brother, kicking up the misery of their collective past. As his journey to escape becomes tougher than ever thought imaginable; it strips what little resolve and restraint Adam has unleashing his rage. Eric Monsky describes Adam's inner life with frightful honesty and intimacy. His shocking, funny and depraved portrait of a man refusing to feel his suffering is a disturbing exploration of human nature and its desperate need for distraction and avoidance in the face of tragedy.
