The second edition of the paperback release of Lost and Not Found features a brand new cover design and a few typographical and editorial changes from its original release, but is basically the same book that was originally released in 2003. Four books in one that all tell the same story (The main character, writing a novel, the first book he tries to write -about a superhero- and the second book he tries to write -about his personal romantic history- followed by the strange, final story whose fantastic details it would not be fit to reveal prior to their discovery through the course of the novel…), perhaps a sort of autobiography where the author reveals his own past, future, and fantasies in the same complex tapestry of character-driven fiction, and a love story spanning multiple realities and serveral hearts’ desire just touch the tip of this literary iceberg.
This is a novel equally close to home, universally accessible, and complex enough to present unique ideas to readers at all levels. It contains some mature material, but is recommended for readers of all interests.
From the back cover:
In this, the debut novel from creative mind Teel McClanahan III, we follow the stories of a young man trying to write his own debut novel. Faced with the added challenge of trying to complete a novel in only one month, he pours himself literally into the process. But are his attempts at fiction hitting a little too close to home? As he tries to live on one side and write on the other, he finds that the line between imagination and reality may not exist at all.
Will he finish his novel in time? Will he end up with the woman of his dreams? Will he choose to anchor himself in reality, or lose himself in his own fiction? And which of these would really be the better outcome?
Contains some mature content.
