If all the world’s a stage - then a star should never be bored!
This is the highly original and very entertaining conclusion to The Indignities e-book trilogy.
Once Stephen Spear’s destiny as an actor seemed so assured - but after he was throttled to death on prime time television, his prospects seemed to shrivel up and die. Yet, true talent can’t be crushed. For if all the world is truly a stage, then why shouldn’t Stephen create and become a new character whenever he feels like it? Given the ghastly turn his personal circumstances have taken, it was a sheer relief to pretend to be someone else. Of course some sticklers might call this lying, but Stephen considered it the flourishing of his creative gift.
This imprudent artistic experiment takes Stephen to some surprising places. Though he does find himself back on stage, in the spotlight, and winning prizes - just not quite as he had imagined. While along for the ride, is the most unlikely new partner in crime.
Stephen’s antics reach outrageous new heights in this wicked, witty depiction of the gay Sydney lifestyle.
Praise for The Indignities Book Three:
‘Aitken’s writing style is detailed and nicely evocative. He writes characters extremely well, with both humour and poignancy. Aitken also knows how to deliver a satisfying ending. Overall The Indignities series provides a satisfying read that tickles the funny bone and the heart-strings. I enjoyed these books and look forward to more from Aitken, who is a skilled and sensitive writer.’ (Polari Journal)
A Very Satisfying Conclusion
This is a very satisfying conclusion to The Indignities series. There are new outrageous antics from Stephen Spear and these chapters where Stephen launches his impersonations are probably the funniest and most original part of all three books. Yet by the final chapter, I also had the sense that there had been some change and growth in this badly behaved (yet still endearing) main character.
