Pariah Redux Bob Fingerman Tpb
Regular price $19.99
In a modest Manhattan walk-up, a group of survivors are on their last legs. As the end seems nigh, a teenage girl is spotted on the avenue, not only alive but repelling the undead like Moses parting the Red Sea. When she comes to their aid questions of who, what and why she’s immune to attack arise.
Almost like a play, this single location-eccentric story features a strong cast of archetypal, yet fully fleshed-out, distinct, characters.
The artist; the young widow; the elderly couple; the bros living a new normal, for one of whom it’s also finally living his truth; the country boy who’s turned his back on his faith only to have it return in earnest.
And the mysterious stranger that arrives as their savior, only to confound them, even as she complies with their ever-increasing impositions.
PARIAH sets the classic zombie tropes on their ear as the element of immunity to attack is introduced into the mix.
Very contemporary, but also taking cues from the classic New York cinema of Martin Scorcese, Neil Simon, Woody Allen and other gritty cinema and literature, PARIAH thrusts the reader into a truly dire survivors’ tale, capturing the desperation and resolve of its disparate cast.
