“Bloody Rabbit” follows one man’s terrifying journey from hopelessness to a new start — in a world spinning out of control.
ORLANDO — Freeline Productions has released a gripping and eerie new novel, “Bloody Rabbit.” The book by author Michael W. Freeman
examines one man’s painful efforts to climb out of a dark hole of hopelessness and despair following the economic crash, and how his own feelings of inferiority contribute in a sometimes frightening way to his downfall.
We are introduced to the world of R.T. Robeson, who, by his mid-40s, thought he was firmly settled into a comfortable and well-established life. But as the story unfolds, the Great Recession has claimed virtually all he had…including his job, house, car and self-worth. After two years of unemployment, his life finally starts to turn around when he lands a new, lower paying job.
Now he finds himself riding the city bus to a neighborhood he might never have considered living in before, resting all his hopes on securing a tiny apartment that’s become available. Not even the unit’s unsavory history discourages him from his desperate need to lease the space. And yet, as the landlady accepts his application, a ‘tiny win’ that would otherwise be celebrated, Robeson still finds it nearly impossible to fight off feelings of being a failure. Continue reading
