Book – The Pissant’s Bet

After the death of his father and an ego-damaging breakup, unemployed college dropout Billy MacKenzie finds himself in a series of disastrous scenarios that take him from his Jersey Shore home to Boston, Philadelphia and Brooklyn. When his best friend Brian confronts him about finding a job to alleviate his misery, drug-addled Billy makes a bet with him- with unexpected consequences. The Pissant’s Bet combines satire, realism and slapstick against a backdrop of hipster parties, communal living and bourgeois-bohemian life at the beginning of the 21st century, while asking the question “What motivates someone to make art?”
