'The Wrinkly'. A farcical attempt at early retirement.
By Paul Collis. (That's me.)
Tired of the rat race in the stone-faced city and disillusioned with his shallow relationships and meaningless career, Mike Lewis, approaching forty, makes a ridiculous attempt to join a retirement community in Florida. But, instead of a relaxing life of golf and beach-combing, he finds himself dealing with lust, crime, cosmetics – and an identity crisis.
