"Fight for Your Long Day" is a day-in-the-life satire that follows the eventful unraveling and misadventures of Cyrus Duffleman--"Duffy"-- a portly, down-and-out adjunct instructor who teaches at four urban universities, and then works the night shift. as a campus security guard.

Set in the postmodern age of pervasive terror, Alex Kudera's debut novel embodies the American-made irony of being overeducated, overworked and underpaid. The story ...will appeal to fans of John Kennedy Toole's "A Confederacy of Dunces," and Richard Russo's "Straight Man."
