Recent release “Functional Illiteracy” from Page Publishing author Kristof Lyons is the story of Adam Truman, a reluctant hero who chooses indifference as his shield and apathy as his dagger. Whether he’s facing the elitists of academia, communist leftovers, or advocacy groups, Adam continually finds himself having to defend the fact that he just doesn’t care.

Kristof Lyons, a well-traveled man with Midwestern roots who lives in New England with his wife and children, has completed his new book “Functional Illiteracy”: a provocative story whose protagonist’s main triumph is his ability to point out and challenge the hypocrisy of those around him.

Lyons shares, “Adam doesn’t necessarily hate everyone; he just doesn’t find much use in anyone. His is the constant struggle against indoctrination disguised as education. His life is unraveling the mystery surrounding popular culture in which perversion is embraced and goodness is rejected. He has no compassion for the apologists and excuse seekers, nor does he pity their plight. He knows he is right but sees little utility in saying so. The elites don’t want solutions. Slow suicide is the conclusion of his existence.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Kristof Lyons’s razor-sharp tale questions the ethical foundations of modern civil society.

Readers who wish to experience this biting and provocative work can purchase“Functional Illiteracy” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
