9780615693712: The Broke Brothers' Revolution

Carlos Tyrone is pissed. More specifically, he’s pissed with his awful live-in girlfriend/baby-mama, Lola, who has become ungrateful, unloving and increasingly irritable. Seeking an outlet to vent this frustration, the newspaper columnist writes a piece that plants the seeds for Carlos’ makeshift protest movement against patronizing women: The Broke Brothers’ Revolution. Carlos soon recruits his friends Gent, Oscar and Daniel to The Broke Brothers’ Revolution and attempts to lure other men and draw attention to his cause with his newspaper column and through the use of the group’s website (www.TheBrokeBrothersRevolution.com). And that's when the fun begins. The quartet takes aim at society’s women-centric conventions: ladies’ night club promotions; female-biased discounts at restaurants and bars; the gesture of buying women’s drinks and male-bashing in the media. Do they have a point that modern women’s expectation of male chivalry is out of whack, or is their frustration misguided? Better yet, are the men of The BBR broke—guys without money, or are they broken—men who need to be “fixed” after past decisions continue to dog them in the present? And if that is the case, can the souls and integrity of these four broken men be restored? With "The Broke Brothers Revolution," J. Shawn Durham has crafted a wildly funny, absorbing and even poignant probe into the psyche of Everymen struggling to understand what it means to be a man in the 21st century. Will they find their way or will they fail miserably? You’ll have to read on and see. You can also follow "The Broke Brothers' Revolution" on Twitter @TheBrokeBrosRev, #brokepower.

About the Author:

J. Shawn Durham is a writer/journalist who mines topics that challenge the conventional wisdom of the Zeitgeist. A veteran of newspapers, magazines and blogs, Durham has penned many works that probe dating and the war of the sexes, politics and sports. His debut novel, "The Broke Brothers’ Revolution," is a provocative, refreshingly honesty look at how men and women play the expectations game when it comes to sex and courtship. What starts as a satirical farce turns into a moving treatise on the current state of manhood in the 21st century. A native of Macon, Georgia, Durham currently resides in Washington, D.C.
