              The Comic
               

              The Comic (EPUB ebook)

              By Rogal, Stan

              The novel explores issues such as political correctness/cultural sensitivity, personal and private space, social media, freedom of speech, huckster media, the notion of originality, and most especially the nature of humour itself-what makes something funny, what subjects are tabo...o and why, what causes certain jokes to lose favour, and how does context affect what can or cannot be said. To further this approach, he takes the name Bruce Leonard and dresses a la TVs Columbo. On his downward spiral, the man meets some wild characters: a female stand-up comic who tends to mirror his routine and voyage, a prosecuting lawyer who uses court cases to promote her other role as author, an omnipresent drug dealer, a hipster talk show host who shills everything from diet plans to CDs with equal aplomb.

              Mike Hanson is surprised by the death of his aunt Ruth. Even more surprising is that he receives an inheritance with strings attached: pack up his city life in Toronto and move to a farmhouse in the tiny prairie village of Abbey, Saskatchewan, to pursue a career in art. If he can... live the artist's life for three years, the property along with a tidy sum of cash is his; if he fails, the inheritance will be divided among several charities. Dog the Moon addresses the cultural dichotomies of urban vs. rural, good vs. evil, atheism vs. religion, art vs. pornography, the individual vs. the community, and others as it takes aim at the art of mythmaking. Although set within the tradition of Canadian novels that witness how a city dweller copes within a newfound wilderness, Dog the Moon deviates from tradition in its existentialism and allusive explorations of the arts, pop culture, and the media as it shows how we are constantly bombarded by masses of information that serve to infiltrate and influence our thinking and behaviour.
