Small town Texas is tough on a gay kid, but this one decided to learn karate. Problem solved, or so he thought.
Time Flies is funny. It’s the tender story of a young man who doesn’t let society or its machinery hold him back. He’s going to fall in love, and there’s nothing you can do about it. He’s going to save the world, and it’s so Top Secret that nobody gives him a medal or says Thank You. Those would have been nice, but what he got was love.
His whole life is about hope. If bubba doesn’t give you hope, you make it yourself. If society says you’re substandard, go change the standard. Andreas learns how to do that, and he’s really funny doing it.
This is Wynn Wagner’s first book since a hospital stay of 5-months awhile ago. He has no pancreas now, and he suffers from dementia. Writing with dementia isn’t as simple as you might think.
Time Files starts angry. The narrator hates living in Texas, hates the bubbas down the street, and has a generally foul attitude. His rooster is continually stoned on pot seeds from somewhere. The book goes through snarky and funny, and it ends with some of the most loving prose we’ve seen in years.
