Nathan is not ambitious, and he is perfectly happy doing nothing at the dusty and cluttered office of his boss, Dr. Behr, a quirky ex-literature professor pushing 80. Behr's substantial inheritance in rental properties means during the day Nathan pushes papers and cuts up with his gay co-worker, Edward, so at night he can spend time with his girlfriend, Amy, a feisty woman whose sexual appetite keeps Nathan contented, even if her demands are annoying.

But things are about to get tossed in the air as Nathan and Edward uncover a mysterious plan of Behr's to oust one of his renters for what appears to be a substantial but ill-gotten profit. Behr recruits his slacker employee to help in the plot, but as Nathan questions motives and discovers secrets, it is clear that Nathan might be in for surprises of his own.

Bizarre characters worthy of a Seinfeld episode on acid populate this "Literally Laugh Out Loud" tale of misadventure and intrigue. Brooklyn, England and Russia are all part of Nathan's journey that holds the potential to change his life forever, so who does he trust in this Travels and Travails of Small Minds?

About the Author

Daniel Falatko is originally from Pennsylvania. He received his undergraduate degree from Kutztown University and went on to receive an MFA in Creative Writing from Vermont College. His critically acclaimed first novel, Condominium, was published in 2015. He lives and works in New York City.

The publication of Travels and Travails Of Small Minds marks the completion of a daydream sparked in 2007 involving New York City real estate scams, age-challenged literature professors, dead beatniks, fictitious English villages named after wolves, and post-apocalyptic Moscow slums. Threading these disparate pieces together was a laborious undertaking, and the author hopes you enjoy these final results.
