9781933929903: Naked Metamorphosis

Kafka's Shakespearean Tragedy! All the world's a stage...and Franz Kafka wants to direct! The absurdist has got his hot little hands on the Bard's greatest work - Hamlet. Unfortunately, William S. Burroughs wants to direct too! Perhaps, George W. Bush wants a piece of the action as well. One thing these literary creators haven't taken into consideration, though, are the characters. Horatio, Hamlet's college roommate, has reached the end of his rope trying to determine whether the piece is a tragedy or a comedy. Hamlet has dropped into a world of hallucinogens and drugs, and thinks he may be turning into a cockroach. And after the declaration of a ghost in Elsinore , Claudius has declared a "War on Terrors"! What's it all about? And why is Puck around? These questions, and many more, will be answered in a bawdy, bizarro tale of Shakespearean proportions - complete with mistaken identity, ghosts, and true love lost.

From the Inside Flap:

"Sublimely witty, wickedly wry, Eric Mays' version of Hamlet turns the tragedy on its comedic ear. Readers will be laughing out loud one minute and cringing in icky, Kafka-esque surprise the next. You have never read Shakespeare like this!" - GINA FARAGO, author of Ivy Cole and the Moon and Luna

"An often hilarious tale of one man's quest for sense in a world that refuses to provide any. Stoppardian, whimsical and subtle in its transgressions, this is a book for Shakespeare buffs and Bizarro readers looking for a lighter more literary brand of Bizarro. If you're a Bizarro fan and somebody says Bizarro is brainless, filthy and lame, give them a copy of this." - WITHERSIN MAGAZINE

"...the literary mash-up and alternate lit is big business. It ranges from great to god-awful. Naked Metamorphosis by Eric Mays is a new addition to this emerging genre. It's the first time the subtleties of Hamlet are explored, and is riddled with hilarity. The later acts feel a bit rushed (was the author under a deadline?), but if you enjoy Gregory Maguire, the master of this genre, you should give it a look." - RVA NEWS QUICK BOOK BLURB
