Welcome to the world of Ross Bezark. In Diatribe, he explores the muddled distinctions separating mental illness from personal preference through the eyes of an obsessive-compulsive protagonist with a Walter Mitty-like defense mechanism trying to navigate the mine field called life. Amongst the funny, raw, sad, and sometimes disturbing anecdotes, there are inter-related tales of awful jobs, dating hell, and mental illness; of circus midgets crashing through windows and Alice from the Brady Bunch naked on a trampoline; of body part thieves at work and animals taking their revenge. All this is interspersed with biting social commentary, poetry, and a perspective altering cross-country trip.Ross Bezark offers an unique, insightful, oftentimes unsettling, but always honest style of writing rarely seen in American literature today. Diatribe is not a generational tale, but something to which every thinking person can relate - the struggle for meaning in daily life.
