Acts of a Dubious Nature

In Acts of a Dubious Nature, Tony Canino casts a fresh voice and a baleful eye on the many affronts and trespasses that human beings both suffer and inflict. An abused elder who’ll protect his dead son’s memory at any cost, an honest fighter forced to throw a fight, a man recalling his many sins as his parachute fails, a sailboat full of reprobates burying a German admiral at sea, and a rancher with the darkest of secrets. Axel, Lickety, “Don” Carmine, Aunt Mavis, Bee Boy, Lucky the Space Alien – all part of a cast unlike any you’ve ever met.

Acts of a Dubious Nature: funny, heartbreaking, honest, utterly unpredictable – the perfect read for anybody who prefers the literary road less traveled.
