The King of the Sea Monkeys

Centered around a young high school teacher, The King of the Sea Monkeys is a novel in two parts. Because the protagonist suffers from a traumatic brain injury, the first part is fragmented, finding its way in the narrative in disorderly pieces. The protagonist's “normal” life disintegrates when he is involved in an altercation at a convenience store which ends in a shooting. He survives a terrible injury but his world is undone.
