Summary

“Call me Epidemetheus,” requests the expat American narrator. His adventures, both real and imagined, explore deeply philosophical aspects of his life as the metaphorical hapless brother of Prometheus. Epidemetheus caroms from tennis pro in Thailand, to university professor in South Korea, to gun runner, to jilted husband discussing philosophy with Frankenstein’s creature in the Arctic, and back to South East Asia in his search for understanding. Along the way New York Mike haunts his every move and thought. Unique in its exploration of philosophy, New York Mike romps through western intellectual literature, film and art references in a Walter Mittyesque exploration of the challenges encountered by an expat American in contemporary South East Asia.
