What do an overweight stripper, the CIA, corruption in New York City, the Israeli Mossad, ancient Inca civilization, terrorism, political intrigue, mad dashes across America, and a waste-case of a teenager have in common? They are the ingredients of this action-packed crime and coming-of-age novel. Much of this story is based on true events, perhaps too true to be believed. Guaranteed to make you think and probably to shudder as you relive 9/11.

"In his book Times To Try The Soul Of Man, Kenneth Weene paints a vivid portrait of the peripatetic freelance journalist peering from the outskirts of mass corruption at an American horror show." (Anthony Flacco - NY Times best selling author)

A Compelling Read and an intriguing study of human nature. Nick is a struggling small time New York newspaper reporter, who is more interested in getting laid by as many women as possible than he is in furthering his career. Until he stumbles upon the lead that could give him the story of a lifetime—the one that will propel him from obscurity to Pulitzer Prize. A string of bizarre circumstances follow, which include a Latino activist, a greedy real estate developer, the mob, corrupt cops, a Mossad operative, an Arab and a man who doesn't exist, all of which culminate in 9/11 -- the most disastrous and cataclysmic event ever to occur in New York.

In this novel, Kenneth Weene foreshadows the jettisoning of individual-as-god politics with the figure of José Figurés and the concept of community. Figurés is too good to be long for this world, just long enough, fortunately, to infect the narrator, Nick, with the idea that other people exist and that there is an alternative to self-absorption. Weene deftly draws the reader in from the beginning and moves the action along at a cracking pace, helped by healthy doses of humour and irony. He leaves his protagonist with the beginnings of wisdom, and I hope he will invite us back to watch Nick develop them (or squander them) in our brave new world.
