Satirical writer to read debut novel

Written by 

Alex Kudera will read from his new satirical novel, Fight for Your Long Day, at 7 p.m. on May 6 at City Lights bookstore in Sylva.

The book is a day-in-the-life tragicomedy that follows the unraveling and misadventures of Cyrus Duffleman, a portly, down-and-out college instructor who teaches classes at four urban universities and also works the night shift as a security guard.

Fight for Your Long Day is a manifesto for adjunct faculty everywhere, but most all workers will see some of their own struggles in Duffy’s adventures.

Kudera is a native Philadelphian but now teaches literature and writing at Clemson University. Fight for Your Long Day is his first novel.
