 About the Book 

To challenge one’s Self is to challenge those around one, so long as the challenge is noted: In a world where past, present, and future are being served as one dish, Chauncy P.

Dahmue is taking strides to end the existence of the silver platter on which they are offered. With a message of Self-acknowledgment and its corresponding benefits of strength and happiness, resistance is both acceptable and expected as he tries to expose the base Self to an ambiguously content society.“Chance had closed his eyes and was facing straight ahead, the rumblings had ceased, movement itself had taken leave from that place…and somehow the feeling of easiness had dissipated, the fear that had been birthed of Chance’s warnings of my role had matured into an unsettling emptiness that struck stomach for the sickness of truth, chest for the pain of guilt and a broken heart, throat for the threat of crying or screaming, stopping my thought on a dime that could only be used to finalize a decision of yes or no, heads or tails, as to whether or not life continued.”From a sexually-charged failed wedding to a Shakespearean shoe-store clerk and a demake-up salon, the narrator recounts his experience in an involving, evolving Stewardsville, with dubious intentions of personal progression.
