NEW YORK - s4story -- Wordeee announces the publication of BLUNT by artist and author, Thomas Easley. In the tradition of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti,  and Ginsberg, Easley captured the counterculture voice of a generation. Ben Marmot, a man with a life of promise gone wrong, is an anarchist and antiestablishment iconoclast. A well-traveled 64-year-old decorated war hero and Vietnam War sniper, his country has all but forgotten him. Each passing day, it seems like the establishment has taken away more of the freedom he depends on to survive. Traumatized by life, suffering from PTSD, angry and bitter, he's reduced to living in a trailer park in Paradise at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Into Ben's life comes Sally, a 33-year-old ethereal being. When Ben meets Sally, they immediately see hope in one another. Forced inside themselves into their own world, they find solace. When the 2018 Paradise campfire began, the deadliest wildfire in California's history, they decided to make a new start. Like infamous duos, Thelma and Louise or Bonnie and Clyde, Sally and Ben embark on a road trip to Key West. Following the journey of these lost souls on their road trip and watch their traumas play out in unbelievable ways, we hear their ideas about a world gone wrong, watching as they become renegades for freedom. "Written in terse, stunning, in-your-face prose, BLUNT will force you to think past your own boundaries to a larger, more complex and connected world," stated Patrice Samara, COO of Wordeee.
