Anders Flagstad’s new novel Thad Says Parts Is Parts (And Thad Is Right) – soon to be available on Amazon – is a screwball comedy of errors straight from the vaults. Literally. It’s an adaptation of the Roman playwright Plautus’s comedy Epidicus, but set in 21st century LGBT San Francisco, and asking the often agonizing and perplexing question “Is it possible to be rich, gay, San Franciscan and happy, all at the same time?”
Many are those who ask. Few are answered. Even fewer remember what the question was when the answer hits them squarely between the eyes with all the subtlety of a rapidly swung two-by-four. Eddie Stone – the hero of this and his own story – he happens to be one of those few people. Eddie ends up, as you can imagine, with a very sore head.
And of course, it all takes place in The City – the city by the bay, San Francisco.
– The novel “Thad Says Parts Is Parts (And Thad Is Right)” is Book Two of the Principal Parts Series – Book One of the series is “Spare Parts”, a collection of short stories to be out on Amazon this summer. Principal Parts is a set of interconnected books and characters about San Franciscans and how they got that way and what they do to stay that way and where they expect to go with all this stuff they’re doing.
