Is Your Life Killing You?
Ten did everything like he was supposed to, just like he saw on TV and in the movies. Despite his sterling academic career, impressive job, and almost beautiful girlfriend, he wakes up one morning and admits that something isn’t quite right. For the previous twenty years, Ten has been hounded by an internal saboteur, tormented by a dark menace that steals the joy from every moment, turning life into a monotonous blur of insipid, carbon-copy days.
When conventional methods fail to heal him, Ten leaves the country in search of a cure for his pain of existence. Along the way, he meets a motley crew of characters, some out to aid him in his quest, others who want to stop him. As his personality unravels, Ten unwittingly finds himself in the middle of the fundamental human dynamic, one that threatens to destroy civilization as we know it.
Manifesting the Monkey, the debut novel from nomadic author Dennis Dziedzic, explores the complexities of modern life and the effects of an increasingly dysfunctional world on the human psyche. The story offers an unconventional avenue for equalizing this imbalance and reconciling the inner and outer worlds. This re-calibration provides a useful glimpse into the heart of humanity and the possibility of a brighter future for everyone.
