FIGHT FOR YOUR LONG DAY is a day-in-the-life tragicomedy that follows the eventful unraveling of Cyrus Duffleman, a portly, down-and-out educator who teaches classes at four urban universities and works the night shift, all so he could barely stay afloat in an increasingly efficient service economy.This dark satire, set in the modern, super-information age of terror squared, embodies the American-made irony of being an overworked, overwrought and marginalized citizen in a once-wealthy and industrious country.Watermark plot points twist and turn as students protest, get laid, practice murder, and commit suicide, while Duff, the novel's lovable loser, trudges along from pillar to post with his overstuffed book bag and perversely cynical thoughts.

    " Very smart and funny satire of higher ed and America. If you're an adjunct, know an adjunct, or are involved in higher ed in any way, read this! "

    " I did not care for the character of Duffy. His life was too sordid and miserable, and he did not show any redeeming qualities that even tempted me to empathize with him. "

    " I thought this was a wonderful first novel about a very interesting and timely topic. Kudera kept me absorbed in Cyrus' struggles. "

    " Perfect for disgruntled adjuncts and Philly natives - the gritty slices of Philly life - especially Septa adventures - were great and the bitterness of an adjunct seeps from the page (a good thing). At times a little rambling, but a fun read and it's worth keeping tabs on Kudera's future work. "
