Overview

In his bizarre and compelling novel, Lo Mein, Robert Eringer leads his readers on a frenetic journey into the mind of an obsessed artist-turned-killer.  Willard Stukey is a self-proclaimed artistic genius whose lack of acceptance by the snooty New York art world leads him to develop a new and deadly method of self-expression: mass murder. His killing spree inside Walt Disney World earns him the attention he craves -- and some he doesn’t expect.  Jeff Dalkin, a Bruce Willis lookalike, is the former FBI agent hired by a shrill Disney chairman to and end the ensuing media circus. Dalkin's uncontrollable outbursts of obscenities and odd words -- the result of Tourette’s Syndrome -- provide the novel with its peculiar title and ambience.

Lo Mein explores the dark side of creativity without losing its sense of humor.  Colorful characters abound.  The result is a novel that captures the absurd complexities of life in America on the cusp of the 21st century and will leave you thinking even after you stop laughing.

About the Author:

Once upon a time, Robert Eringer wrote nonfiction--mostly journalism--a mass media. Eventually, he discovered that making everything up is more fun than reporting facts. (Newspaper editors do not appreciate imagination.) So now Eringer writes highly creative novels--a minor media--for a highly limited audience. He does this for his own amusement, and he hopes such mirth extends to his reader. Eringer’s fiction was described on NBC’s Today as a combination of “the intrigue and lunacy of life."

Editorial Reviews

Kate Westrich
Lo Mein goes a little crazy with everything from Bruce Willis to a shooting spree in Disney World... The deaths in Disney World have a twinge of twisted humor; the murder spree exacts the ultimate revenge on the Disneyfication of the world. If any greater lesson is to be derived from Lo Mein it's Eringer's denouncement of the irrational litigation rampant in American society compiled with the large amounts of power in the hands of such entities as Walt Disney and CNN.
