Cedeno s edgy first novel is not for the faint-of-heart.Kicked out of a transvestite prostitute s apartment in Los Angeles, Schetzzer moves into a body shop and sleeps in the back seat of a 57 Mustang. He works as the local gas station attendant, pumps gas, steals oil containers, and sells them to his customers. One of his clients is Kato, a Japanese-descendant and marine biologist. Kato offers him a job at the local newspaper as a classified advertising clerk, which years later leads Schetzzer into the role of main columnist in Southern California, writing controversial subjects about how religion, society, and education hold humanity back through selfish myth and customs.After an encounter with God, Schetzzer travels to the Galapagos Islands where he meets a mysterious old man who has spent close to thirty years of his life studying animal behavior. Awareness ensues, beginning with Schetzzer s application of the theory of evolution and adaptability to his own life. Acerbic, exorbitant, intense, and always unsettling, Cedenos The Last Poem of Schetzzer is utterly original in concept and makes even the most satiated reader sit up and pay attention.
