The Maniac Manifesto

by Nick Caligari

The Maniac Manifesto Synopsis

THE UNDERGROUND NOVEL YOU WERE NEVER MEANT TO READ! I'll commit suicide soon enough. Maybe before the end of this book, if we're both lucky. In fact, you can even think of what you're reading as the longest suicide note in history. Equal parts sex comedy, misanthropic rant, and hate letter to the world, THE MANIAC MANIFESTO is the radical confession of a self-proclaimed ordinary man. By turns darkly humorous and outrageously offensive, it chronicles the exploits of its nameless anti-hero who, following an unhappy love affair, voluntarily descends into what he calls the maggotlife -a dark night of the soul from the depths of which issues the grim testament of a man determined to tell the absolute truth. Even if it kills him. Nihilistic, misogynistic, and apocalyptic, THE MANIAC MANIFESTO is a text like virtually no other-an admission of everything we've been taught to suppress, conceal, and never speak aloud, not to others, not even to ourselves.
