Fiction / Satire / Mystery / Comedy
The most violent comedy since The Bible.
DC gets destroyed.
Harland gets wasted.
America gets the leader it deserves.
This pitch-black satire follows a disillusioned pothead and his friends navigating an American minefield of domestic terrorists, power-grabbing opportunists, and meaningless dead-end jobs. Philosophical, irreverent, and sometimes oddly hopeful, Hyperbole explores what might become of the laymen when America's head gets chopped off.
Fans of transgressive fiction and dark humor should grab this book with both hands and not eat or sleep until it's consumed.
"Hyperbole" is the debut novel by author Ryan Parmenter, who has performed in and around Detroit, Michigan as a comic improviser, a teahouse musician with JRS, and as leader of the defunct progressive band Eyestrings.
