Inspired by the 1966 novel “Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up To Me” by Richard Fariña, “The Manly Paradox” ultimately proves that one must believe in young romance and that truth should always triumph.

Max Steiner pens a classic coming-of-age story about two star-crossed lovers in his entertaining new novel, “The Manly Paradox” (published by AuthorHouse).

Set at a fictional university in upstate New York, “The Manly Paradox” tells the story of Chris, a computer science student who grew up an orphan and, until his professor took him in, was attending classes during the day and sleeping in the woods at night.

As he pursues his undergraduate degree, Chris finds himself intrigued with the security of financial transfers. He begins to research them, and his work leads him to stumble across the very rich Manly family and the financial transfer company they control.

By coincidence, Kyle Manly enrolls as a freshman undergrad at Chris’ university after he’s started graduate school there, and she winds up in one of his classes. The young woman becomes infatuated with her young instructor; meanwhile, her arrogant, controlling father has given a grant to the school that funds Chris’ work.

Young love begins to blossom between Kyle and Chris. Meanwhile, his grant research is beginning to entail some underhanded dealings. As the Manly family looks to Chris to help them breach their own company’s security, he has some important decisions to make.

Inspired by the 1966 novel “Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up To Me” by Richard Fariña, “The Manly Paradox” ultimately proves that one must believe in young romance and that truth should always triumph.
