Swell

By Rivenrod

General fiction, Literary fiction | Paperback, eBook


Swell is a seminal tale of obsession, deviance and a mother's unrelenting control of her only son, even from the grave. Now, as he approaches middle age, he is outwardly a tiresomely pedantic, uncomplicated man living a mundane life in a town of suffocating ordinariness. But, when his body is discovered by a beautiful, voluptuous young woman, possessed of an overwhelming desire to be alone with him, we begin to suspect that nothing about this man, and the story of his life, is as it seems. Swell is a tale for the 21st Century, yet the prose conveys the sense of a grainy black-and-white movie, a Romance Noir, with its stark imagery and poignant drama drenched with connotation.



Artist|Author: Rivenrod stands for integrity & humanity against the shameless excesses of the 21st Century. Immersed in Realpolitik he is carelessly un-PC yet diplomatically forthright: shabby yet chic: a liver of many lives. He is also an Advocate of the SpeakOut Organisation and supporter of War on Want and Action Aid. Things that interest me . . . Alpha: art history, artists, the written word, humanity and discovering faces in floor coverings. I have also enjoyed a lifelong quest to explore the many and varied ways in which eggs and tomatoes may be used as tools of persuasion. Beta: making music, modeling with clay, eavesdropping and jelly slapping, belly dancing, maggot racing and developing new strategies for pissing off those who are so very much in love with themselves, and their ridiculously elevated statuses, that they can't help but talk shit and fart through their ears. You know who you are! I have an ingrained passion for preserving ancient and modern nomadic cultures along with an unwavering belief that all human beings have a duty to fight, with whatever it takes, and call to account those who carry out, condone and advocate genocide in any of its forms. Including those who stand by and do nothing.
