Ghabaei was a poet who was madly in love with his girlfriend, Mellie. Together, they lived in a tiny shack on the shore of Manhattan Beach, CA. where he spent endless hours devising a literary theory (Ewbanism) which was meant to crack the code of all Literature. But what happens instead of being congratulated for his work, and deifi ed as a Literary Prodigy for these unprecedented theories, is the dumping of disgrace, pity, and rejection upon Ghabaei, from all of society's angles. All is lost for the young poet until an old man shows up in his life. Could the old man make things better for Ghabaei? Or, could he actually make things worse than they already are? Told in a voice that will rivet laughter through your heart and pierce your soul with sorrow, THE POET'S MIDDLE FINGER is the best a story about a poet can get!
