ACEDIA: a state of listlessness or torpor, of not caring or not being concerned with one’s position or condition in the world...

It’s 2018, and after serving three years in prison for digging up William Shakespeare’s grave, Travis Morrison is returning home to Alexandria, Virginia, confident that he can make a respectable living from the infamy of his crime. But the world has changed in three years, and Travis quickly discovers that he must rely on his reluctant ex-friend, Bob Green, to claim the rewards of notoriety Travis is convinced are his.

Presented through the wild and conflicting perspectives of Bob and Travis, Acedia delivers an ambitious storyline that deftly probes some key premises about Western civilization’s past and future. A fun and fast tale of the unexpected, Acedia will appeal to readers who enjoy humorous, cerebral fi ction and exceptional writing.

Preview coming soon.

ABE DAWSON was born in 1972 in Alexandria, Virginia, where he lives today. Acedia is his first novel. He is currently completing the sequel, to be released in 2012.
