Celebrate surprises at the end of every year, a synopsis for “Do Not Mix with Alcohol” has been published. Delivered through recollections of a burned on the job firefighter, this highly anticipated book by Ethan Collins explores marriage of appearance to reality and implications their union has on our identity.
Thrilling psychological narratives from Ethan Collins have been reserved by Church Publishing since the day this author was discovered on an transatlantic flight. The painting of a girl drinking beer was explicitly commissioned for the making of this novel’s cover from artist Ruby McMenemy-Taylor. And this Publisher has been sitting at the edge of its proverbial director’s chair so long that this author’s gripping manuscript was the only substance sticking unproven talent to a long development process.
Probably for reason of another career, author Ethan Collins won’t claim to be America’s quickest or most prolific writer. Yet there’s no reason to keep fans or new readers guessing about his novel any longer. In addition to a difficult relationship between young-man and wife, community security, human psychology, and the limit of what can be accepted by society, this author’s novel will be promoted as an existentialist renaissance and Collins will be remember for founding a subsequent movement.
Main character Mason Gardner’s engagement to his girlfriend Aisha is a metaphor. Their relationship’s symbolic of the union between appearance and reality. Appearance is real, and reality is truth, but belief is more powerful than exhibition.
Exhibits (appearances) are meant to make people believe (in reality). Thus two terms, like splitting humans into male and female, are co-dependent on an outcome. Together, two are one. Apart, each attract the other. But both can be and it is a competition so appearance or reality can deviate and claim to exist.
