Our dreams, goals, and aspirations define who we are. But how do we hold onto our dreams once reality threatens them? Pleasure Island centers on the Map Maker’s seminal journey to the sunny, fun-filled isle of his dreams and his struggle to keep paradise found from becoming paradise lost. This book, a by-product of inspirational and literary fiction, explores the theme of subjectivity: We are subjective creatures and our subjective way of looking at the world both protects us and blinds us. The target audience for this book is high school and college students studying English Literature. Bar poets and armchair philosophers are always welcome!

“A delectable dish of human foible, served with parsnips baked in irony oil, all topped with a sprinkling of satire-roasted fennel seeds.”
—Justin Hurwitz,
 Editor, The Harvard Lampoon

“A modern-day parody of Robinson Crusoe in reverse: shipwrecked foreigners with no wish to be rescued from their island paradise, where alcohol flows freely and the mermaids dance into the night.”
—Ben Orlin,
 The Yale Record, America’s oldest humor magazine
