enormity (2.18) Author W. G. Marshall is joined by BOTS fave Walter Greatshell to discuss Mr. Marshall’s newest book, Enormity. A reception and book signing with the author follows. (See trailer after the jump.)

Enormity is the strange tale of an American working in Korea, a lonely young man named Manny Lopes, who is not only physically small, but his work, his failed marriage, his race, all conspire to make him feel puny and insignificant. Then one day an accident happens, a quantum explosion, and suddenly Manny awakens to discover that he is now big, really big. In fact, Manny is a mile-high colossus, a one-man weapon of mass destruction. Yet he means well. Enormity takes some odd turns, featuring characters like surfing gang-bangers, elderly terrorists, and a North Korean assassin who thinks she’s Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. There’s also sex, violence, and action galore, with the army throwing everything it has against the rampaging colossus that is Manny Lopes. But there’s only one weapon with any chance of stopping him: his wife.
