 About the Book 

Authors Note as written in the book:If you’ve read the precursor to the book you now hold, The Slut Always Rides Shotgun, then you should have some idea of what to expect in the following pages. I would be inclined, however, to disprove your expectations because what follows, while it is a direct continuation of the prior story, the themes, story, and so-called moralistic qualities that make up this book are aimed to disclose a darker, more untouchable area of the soul.The events that follow, like in the precursor, have all happened but some are presented in a different timeline. I leave it to the judgment of the reader to determine which events are merely a figment of imaginative suspicion as opposed to...truth. Many of the characters, like before, have had their names changed and/or are combinations of more than one person I know. When I decided to write a sequel to The Slut Always Rides Shotgun, I wanted to not only maintain the original form of structure and humor-based cynicism but to also expand further to touch base on more serious subjects that have plagued or brightened my life since I can remember, one of which being the choice to live and/or take your own life, and the reasons why both of those choices, from a moralistic point of view, live unparalleled. The Slut Always Rides Shotgun’s main point was to drive into the reader the importance of being honest with everyone in your life and beyond. While this next volume continues that tradition, it enforces the dire importance of being honest with YOURSELF- otherwise, the concept of telling someone else “the truth” becomes superfluous, in its own right.The Passive Aggressors is a story that tests that theory, along with many others, in the hopes that whoever’s reading it can look back on their life and truly question the “why not?” instead of simply the “why?”.From the Back Cover:Fate has a bitter flavor but a sweet aftertaste...Plummeting back down his eternally self-deprecating abyss, blending further the truths and illusions of familiarity and destroying what little reality he has left, only with the help of a friend of his father, a bottle of whiskey, a few ounces of Mary J, innumerable pairs of legs to spread, and a return journey into his own Hell and back can a final resolution be found...Direct sequel and possibly the other half of the story to The Slut Always Rides Shotgun, this volume follows a more psychologically-based narrative than its predecessor.The Passive Aggressors is more than just a true tale about the hardships of life. It is a literary experiment designed to push the reader to the farthest reaches of THEIR own Hells in an effort to to shed light onto the face of darkness that exists in all of us, and that few of us are brave enough to realize.
