Abstract (Summary)

The Life and Times of Donny Duckbuuer is a short-story cycle consisting often short stories. The protagonist, Donny C. Pante, journeys through childhood, military deployment, and the woes of dating and relationships. He is a vehicle that explores the rawness of the male psyche. Through Donny, the reader is not limited to the facade one wears during social interactions, what I refer to as: The Representative. The unfiltered male psyche may be considered perverse and disturbing, better to be left locked away inside one's mind, but to do so is to deny one's own human nature. While most would prefer to not "go there," Donny does.
