I am pleased to say cult press Dynatox Ministries has accepted my novelette pitch “A Confederacy of Hot Dogs”. Below is a synopsis of the story that features poet Philip LoPresti as the protagonist in this retelling of “A Confederacy of Dunces”.
Unemployed poet Philip LoPresti has to pay for an obscenity charge because he made Civil War reenactments with used tampons. The only job he can find is being a hot dog salesman. While he works on his manuscript “Jerk Off On A Tree”, he faces daily challenges of a working life poet. Can the unhinged LoPresti keep his job and not get to sent to jail? Can his new poetry collection “Jerk Off On A Tree” get published? Will he find the peace that has escaped him for so long by learning the zen of the hot dog trade?
