Meet Manny. He’s your average shut-in with a penchant for late night television and looting local fountains for coins. With eight locks on his door and newspapers covering his windows, he’s more than a bit paranoid too.
His wasn’t a great life, but it was comfortable-at least it was until the morning he awoke with an egg between his legs. But what might have been a curse becomes a charm as this unlikely event leads him to all night diner, where he finds inedible pie, undrinkable coffee, and the girl of his dreams.
But can this unexpected chance at love survive after the egg cracks and time itself turns against him, dead-set on rerouting history and putting a shovel to the face of the one person who could bring real and lasting change to Manny’s world?
“THE EGG SAID NOTHING is addicitve, romantic, violent, and both paternal and maternal in equal measure. It is a time-traveling, head-spinning, gender role-challenging, and thought-provoking story that I simply had to finish once I started.” – Steve Lowe, author of You Are Sloth!
“This book shows O’Malley has a fine sense of the odd, a clever but snarky mindset and a masterful hand at plot…” – Anita Dalton, I Read Odd Books
“Caris takes on topics of self-hatred, self-imprisonment and self-sabotage in a hilariously literal way. The dialogue is crisp and convincing, the prose is efficient and clear. A compelling tale, well-told and constantly surprising, but gruesome and (spoiler alert!) sad.” – Mykle Hansen, author of HELP! A Bear is Eating Me!
