Product description

Review

“Mike Maggio’s The Appointment is a contemporary tale of alienation, bureaucracy, and merciless academia. Maggio’s anti-hero tries to seek some help—some human concern for his existential plight—but, like Kafka’s K or Tolstoy’s dying Ivan Ilych, fails to find the recognition and human warmth he so desperately needs. The Appointment is a story of existence and mortality and those who avoid human community who are ultimately left totally alone.” JUDITH MCCOMBS, THE HABIT OF FIRE: POEMS SELECTED & NEW

************

“With all the dread-filled propulsion of certain dreams, Mike Maggio’s The Appointment runs on urgency. No time to get a grip on what just happened or what adds up: Professor Withers has been wounded somehow, and yet he still strives for agency and meaning, as though the powers of officialdom were not driving him relentlessly towards the appointed end.” MADELEINE MYSKO, BRINGING VINCENT HOME AND STONE HARBOR BOUND

************

“Mike Maggio has one of the weirdest minds I’ve ever come across, and like all weird minds it is fascinating, colourful, dramatic, and hilarious. Read, laugh, ponder.” SOPHY BURNHAM, AUTHOR OF LOVE, ALBA

Product Description

When a terrifying gang goes on a rampage at a packed subway station, Professor Jeremy Withers is severely beaten and left for dead. When he regains consciousness, he continues his journey to campus, only to find his office empty: His life as an academic for 30 years has been completely erased. A surprise visit from two mysterious inspectors complicates matters further. Do they want information about his attack? Who are they working for? Where can he locate them? Soon Jeremy finds himself lost in a world that seems uncanny and unforgiving, searching for answers from people he cannot find.
