Fiction. Meet Cyrus Duffleman "Duffy" for short an adjunct professor who can barely afford his two-room apartment. Forget about an unfinished novel: He'd be thrilled with health insurance. Still, he gamely shuffles to four urban universities each day to teach, and works a security guard graveyard shift once a week. Cobbled together, he can almost make a living. But today, Duffy's routine isn't quite so predictable: The cryptic mumblings of a possibly psychotic student. Government protests and a bow-and-arrow assassination. Frenzied attempts to spare his sanity (and safety) all while a female coed quietly eyes him. Part A Confederacy of Dunces (John Kennedy Toole), part Straight Man (Richard Russo), FIGHT FOR YOUR LONG DAY is a promising debut from a new literary talent. It will resonate with anyone who has ever known, been taught by, felt sorry for, or lived the life of an adjunct professor.
