The HumblingeBook - 2009
Everything is over for Simon Axler, an American stage actor in his sixties, who lost his magic, his talent, and his assurance.When he goes onstage he feels like a lunatic and looks like an idiot. His confidence in his powers has drained away. Into this shattering account of inexplicable and terrifying self-evacuation bursts a counterplot of unusual erotic desire, a consolation for a bereft life so risky and aberrant that it points not toward comfort and gratification but to a yet darker and more shocking end.
