‘Disenfranchised is what some people would call me, though I still eat plenty of McDonald’s.’
After his brother Erik is left brain damaged from a car crash, Kevin finds himself a reluctant carer; the only clear-headed person in a world of invalids and mindless shoppers.
Mark Vender's 'Adnarchy' tells of Kevin's struggle to find normalcy in his life. Receding into a world of online gaming and binge eating, he tries to create joy in small amusements – defacing ads and making jokes, in the hope that one day his brother will recover.
