|Plot Summary of The Coyote Kings of the Space Age Bachelor Pad|
DelRey, Aug 2004, 13.95, 544 pp.
Hamza Senesert has a BA in English lit, but uses it to wash dishes alongside of peers who cannot speak English. His roommate Ulysses “Yehat” Gerbles shares much in common with Hamza as he too is a part-time loafer. He works at a video store.
Hamza falls in love with Sherem, who he thinks must have come out of one of those Mummy videos as she is an odd duck. She persuades her Coyote Kings (aside to those as lazy as our heroes – the royals are Hamza and Ye) to help her find and safeguard an ancient Egyptian relic with special properties. Their pals Kev and Heinz are also searching with the Kings, but they work for Sherem's enemy, who want to dine on Hamza's brain which possesses special prowess.
THE COYOTE KINGS OF THE SPACE AGE BACHELOR PAD is a wild satirical tale that needs some time to understand what is going on even with the epilogue at the beginning at least until readers realize that they have no idea. The plot spins out of control yet with all that gyration.
