The Odd Plight of Adonis Licht

“A brain-twisting but often memorable tale” — Kirkus

Perception and reality collide in a dark, witty fable combining a reversal of Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis with overtones of Jerzy Kosinski’s Being There.

Adonis Licht, a nondescript museum art curator, is a loner whose closest friend is a mute bag lady shrouded in black. After sleeping four straight days, Adonis awakens to find himself handsome and athletic beyond his wildest dreams. Success proves to be something other than what he imagined.
