The Tyranny of Desire by Morty Shallman follows the life of one Puchy Mushkin, a chronic miscreant whose only redeeming quality might be his infamous well-endowed phallus. After dropping out of law school, Puchy dabbled in the world of art, got divorced, and entered into a volatile gay relationship with a man named Robby that ended with quite a spectacle. Nailed to the wall of his loft by his jilted lover, Puchy vows to end the root of all of his perceived ills in his life - his desires. However, wanting to not want anything is not as easy as he previously presumed, something Puchy soon realizes when he joins his old college roommate in the campaign of a mayoral candidate. As Puchy inadvertently inserts himself into one scandalous situation after another, will he achieve what he set out to?
The Tyranny of Desire is the story of a wonderfully flawed man who can't help causing an uproar wherever he goes simply by being himself. Morty Shallman's novel is delightfully wicked, outrageous, and simply a blast to read. Filled with droll humor, quick-witted dialogue, and colorful characters, the narrative keeps you in stitches and rarely allows your attention to waver. Almost all the characters have over-the-top personalities and quirky traits that make for some hysterically funny scenes. Puchy is a man with spectacular delusions of grandeur, at one point even comparing himself to Albert Einstein. How can you not be entertained by a character like that? If you're looking for a good laugh, don't miss out on this one.
