Novel by Jonathan Harnisch


Porcelain Utopia brings a crisp, manic tone to the field of transgressive literature. The novel details the consciousness of Benjamin J. Schreiber, a trust fund baby with an addiction problem, a constellation of lurid sexual fetishes that shrink into petrified silence in the presence of actual women, and a half-dozen psychiatric disorders ranging from Tourette’s syndrome to schizoaffective disorder. When the drifting, thirty-something writer is taken into police custody for trying to rob a non-cash bank with a threateningly brandished cell phone, his father pulls some strings that land him in court-appointed therapy. Ben’s therapy brings to light the alter ego of Georgie Gust, for whom Ben’s conceptualized a parallel life that both mirrors and channels his own turmoil. With the help of his therapist, Dr. C, Ben navigates the layers of Georgie’s existence, peeling away pieces of his own history, which begins to emerge with a disturbing clarity.

Five part series, to be released soon by babydude publishing, LLC

Man’s tragic fantasy:

He wanders into a wax museum on the exhibit’s last day… The museum comes alive… The mood turns steamy as different fantasies come into play.

A sobering sense of the inevitable begins to creep in … He’s getting married, but to whom?

Larry, alone and disheveled, carrying a purple bag and bottle of meds, walks the city streets then boards a bus, where he proceeds to disturb the passengers with his erratic behavior and verbal outbursts.

Riding the bus or disturbing the passengers – these are not Larry’s concerns, as one-by-one the passengers disappear, the bus fades from view, and Larry finds himself in the office of a psychologist, who pushes for information, asking again and again if anything “out of the ordinary” happened on the bus? But for Larry, everything – on the bus and off – is completely “out of the ordinary,” and he can’t answer. He can only remember. Endlessly.

He can only grieve:

What he had. What he lost. What he’ll never have again. And so Larry, alone and disheveled, continues to walk the streets, continues to ride the bus, where his love, his grief will be eternally entwined.

A husband reads the newspaper while his wife prepares herself to go out to dinner with him. They talk about the news– that children have been found dead in a local park. Their daughter Maya doesn’t want her parents to leave her for the evening, and when the babysitter Anna arrives, everything seems normal–although a little creepy, and once Mom and Dad leave, the babysitter bends down to reach Maya’s gaze revealing her vampire teeth. “Want to go to the park,” she says, and the film fades out.

In a public restroom, the camera pans the closed doors of 4 stalls, the first has an “out of order” sign on it. We hear gaseous noise, and one by one, three musicians (a guitar player, a bass player, and a trumpet player all wearing tuxedos) flush the toilets and come out of the stalls revealing their musical instruments. Finally, the last to come out is an old lady, Pat (from the “out of order” stall). She goes to wash her hands and is shocked to find in the mirror that behind her, the three musicians, wondering where all the noise came from– herself or the musicians.
