Overview

Johnny Means used to make a living.
Now he has a Life.
Sick and tired of the revolving door, the same old jobs, the same feeling of faceless anonymity at work, the mind numbing grind, Johnny is in the mood for mutiny. And he's going to do something about it. He wants his revolution. He's had his wake up call, and now he's going to send a message to The Man.
With the rawness and grit of an untreated wound Year of the Rooster explores one man's powerlessness and his passage to the heights of power. It taps into the psyche of the masses. The boredom, the pressure to consume, ignorance of the subconscious... and the lies we tell ourselves to distract from the ugliness of reality.
Year of the Rooster dismantles the illusions of security, predictability and anonymity that pacify humankind. It exposes common incarcerating binds of society. Greed. The Cubicle Effect. Our contentious relationship with money.
Stalked by the unbearable heaviness of Being, Johnny Means hunts his own prey: The Meaning of Life.

    Highly Recommended - Raw and Gritty novel

    This novel is unapologetically honest.
    The main character Johnny Means, goes from one meaningless job to the next until desperation leads him to a life of crime. He's opportunistic and takes advantage of a situation that leads him to running a dog fighting ring.
    It's the everyman story. It's a social statement on society and a staggering lack of social conscience.
    How despite being rich or poor the pursuit of money can rob any of us of a truly meaningful life.
