News/Press Release — Just Published

Menopause Man-Unplugged
Book Two of The Chronicles of a Wandering Soul Series
a novel by Mel Mathews

“Through the 21st Century Looking Glass”  —USA Today

Mel Mathews is a sensitive observer of the human condition, with an emphasis on the Male Human Condition of our time. He has created a character in Malcolm Clay that is a baby boomer Holden Caulfield, a variation on John Updike’s Rabbit Angstrom, and he manages to take us by the hand and lead us through the bumpy terrain of current interpersonal relationships as well as anyone writing today. Menopause Man–Unplugged is a journey so well written that the novel calls for pause to enjoy the sheer ebullience of the verbiage. Mel Mathews is a fine writer, finding his way through life in these times. He is a reliable companion on the trek we all are taking. And now on to the next volume in the series, SamSara, addictively! —Grady Harp, USA Today

“Mel Mathews’ place in the ranks of fine contemporary writers is assured.”

In The Chronicles of a Wandering Soul series, the wandering, questing central figure of Malcolm Clay has become a new literary icon. With thoughtful ruminations, keen humor, informative explorations of themes from religion to traits of visited countries, and so many clever double entendres, Mel Mathews’ place in the ranks of fine contemporary writers is assured.
—Grady Harp, goodreads, Top10 Reviewer

Raw at times, Mel Mathews, in his unique and uncanny way, takes his readers inside, deep into the soul of a man as he struggles to become free of the illusions that continue to haunt humanity to this very day. Menopause Man–Unplugged brings us closer to the reality that men have equally suffered from what the Women’s Movement began to defy decades ago. A theme runs through Mathews’ novels, suggesting that the so-called problems between the sexes, as with most battles, is not so much about man and woman being at odds with one another, but instead, people being at odds within themselves.
