Ebook Deal of the Day: $4.99 “Parallels” by Sven Hauth
Genre: Surreal Romance
Parallels is the story of Shane, who crosses the continent in his oversized Oldsmobile. In the company of Dorothy, an extroverted teenager, the unspectacular road trip soon turns into a psychedelic odyssey, during which the odd couple must deal with aggressive pro-lifers, a midget school bus inhabitant, and a depressed waitress.
At the same time, Parallels tells the story of the narrator, a hypersensitive twenty-something in search of a preferably uneventful job. As an assistant at the copy room of his former college, he experiences the joy of daily monotony – until the day an encounter with an unknown girl brings upon the dreaded change and leads to a dangerous rendezvous.
As the story progresses, both plot lines start to entwine, creating a tangled web of opposites and similarities, coffee and art, reality and imagination.
