Red Bank, NJ, May 23, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The news about Jasmine Jett is spreading across the city. She's out of the business, hung it up, she's done. She's gone legit and radio-silent, back under her born name and away from super-villainy. However, on the night of April 19, her name was heard once again, only this time it was on the talk show Overnight America with Jon Grayson.
Grayson and Dunphy discussed the new novella "The Last Stand For Jasmine Jett," available through Amazon.com's Kindle program. Dunphy explained how he sought a light touch to the heavy subject of crime, punishment, and the cost to be redeemed and forgiven.
"Jon is a terrific interviewer and a good friend of Popdose.com, the website I regularly write for," Dunphy said of his appearance. "When I suggested I would like to sit down and talk about 'The Last Stand For Jasmine Jett,' Jon didn't hesitate."
Written over a five month period, The Last Stand For Jasmine Jett gave Dunphy the chance to poke a sharp stick at the current fascination with superpeople in movies. "You couldn't hardly get a superhero script greenlit two decades ago, much less actually on the screen, and now it's a dominant genre. Even so, there are things that haven't changed from those first films to today, like the good guys and bad guys destroying city blocks, crushing roads, and such. What about the people who live in those buildings and use those roads? Do they appreciate these folks or tolerate and secretly despise them? And what is a drunk, or depressed, or obsessive superperson like anyway? Are their bathrooms filthy?"
Taking his cues from favorite authors like Douglas Adams and Kurt Vonnegut, Dunphy chases after absurdism. "I want these to be real people in this somewhat unreal environment, and I want the reader to laugh as they read it, but then come away asking some tough questions. Do we as a society have the capacity to truly forgive, or do we just make it harder for people to do right by society, essentially making being 'good' a double punishment? And then I want to follow that up with a burp joke."
