New Novel! Victor of Circumstance by Cal Chayce is Out Now

VICTOR_FOR_EBOOK-3Phronk here. I’m incredibly happy to welcome a new author to Forest City Pulp. Cal Chayce brings in some literary punch with Victor of Circumstance, a funny and thrilling small-town adventure. Here’s my take on it:

Like all good satire, Victor of Circumstance is exaggerated, but rooted in reality. The many characters draw from stereotypes, but even minor characters have quirks and depth that bring into question the real-life assumptions that stereotypes rely on. Yet there are clear villains—Donny Gudsen in particular is a cartoonish boor who could nonetheless be found in today’s news headlines.

The story is cinematic in feel, reminiscent of great comedies like Groundhog Day and Vacation. When all of the characters played their part in the meticulously orchestrated finale, it made me want to stand up and cheer.

Victor of Circumstance is funny and touching. Anyone who gives it a chance is sure to have a good time.

Don’t just believe me.

“Brimming with well-observed critiques of modern life, Victor of Circumstance has some laugh-out-loud moments and satire reminiscent of John Kennedy Toole.”
—Mark A. Rayner, author of The Fridgularity
