Power Park is like nothing you have read before. Adopting a far from conventional style of writing, David Keay weaves a comically robust work of fiction with unmistakable satirical and ironic depth. Keay wittily introduces readers to the chucklesome residents of Westmoreland, the likes of Lance Mantis - the heir of Nathaniel Mantis (the founder of Power Amusement Park), Bill Buckle - the principal of Eisenhower High School, Bill Beverage, Larry Leverage, Lucy Lava, Leonard Schneider (the lawyer eyeing a career in comedy), Bobo Gandalf, and many more. Is it true, as the Crocket organization suspects, that their very own intelligence agent Larry Leverage could be involved in counter-terrorism activities? Have you heard about the reason behind agent Bill Beverage’s discharge from the army? What does Stan Landfill know about Al Kaida and Hillary Braun? Lance Mantis wants to restore the Power Amusement Park, but the ICYMI communication station seemingly has a different idea for the park. Who will have their way with the park? Get yourself David Keay’s Power Park to learn more about Westmoreland.
David Keay’s style of writing is unique. His sentences are elliptical, circuitous, intense and all loaded with sophisticated vocabulary. There is more than just the literal meaning to Keay's work. The scenes Keay creates are thoroughly dramatic and humorous. I found it particularly funny that a moth flew a commercial plane from Washington to Boston. You will want to know what happened to the passengers of the plane. You will want to know why workers at a hotel keep a movie projector in the kitchen. You will want to know what the Daily Trumpet (a newspaper) and The Monitor (also a newspaper) have to say about the residents of Westmoreland. You will want to know all this and more. Power Park is a must-read for lovers of satirical comedy.
