Summary ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ Steve Bauman Matadors Characters ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub He creates a Facebook account While everyone else uses it as a social hub it serves as his daily reminder that he’s getting older less photogenic and anti socialBefore he’s able to delete his account he’s contacted on the site by an old roommate a fellow “Matador” from college and before he knows it he has an actual social engagement As the drink count rises what starts out as a night of catching up uickly spirals out of control as decades old secrets are Who is Michael Norton writing to and why is he so sensitive to the superficial identities of others particularly those on Facebook These uestions drive the suspense in Matadors a one way epistolary mini novel by Steve Bauman Yet the underlying uestion for the un cool but likeable protagonist is where do I fit in this worldMichael Norton s emotionally moribund existence gets a jolt when he reunites with an old schoolmate from California Blake Bain Bivins who has come to Burlington Vermont on business Bain has always been larger than life and a womanizer whereas Michael has always been an introvert and clumsy with the opposite sex When they were twenty charismatic Bain was a source of amusement and even inspiration for Michael But now at age forty and corpulent and over filled with an adult s awareness of such things Michael finds the gap which has only widened with the years disorientatingAs in olden days Michael allows Bain to lead him out on a night on the town where the Californian befriends Michael s locals almost instantly Michael is somewhat turned off read envious at Bain s success the guy s still got it Bain is frustrated with Michael s reticence and prods him to be aggressive which only exacerbates Michael s tendency to compare how his actual self to how others appear not surprisingly with unfavourable resultsHis inability to get it is captured nicely by his experience and obsession with Facebook Yet I joined Facebook and created a profile under my real name with personal information that can be viewed by almost anyone For a while I felt like I was in control of the situation I added an application that tracks the movies music and books I like figuring that might allow me to connect with cool people But it only served to remind me how much out of touch I am with the tastes of my so called peers Which I m fine with so long as I can reconcile my desire to stop judging others for their awful awful tastes in everything with being able to easily see every single day their awful awful tastes in everythingBain s presence awkwardly illuminates Michael s social withdrawal and penchant for taking the safe route Bain truly becomes the bane of Michael s existence His presence instigates the emails within which all these events with Bane are narrated to an old love that make up this book Her name has been X ed out which reveals a great deal too As does the fact Michael doubts she even accesses this particular email account It s only within this relatively safe medium that Michael can let loose his self expression and possibly gain independenceSuch self absorbed introspection often signals a dull plot less story Yet Matadors entertains because Michael through his often uncomfortably candid emails is on a uest A uest for his own identity and place in the world and the irony is that he s not really aware of it The smooth and unselfconscious writing from an often amusing and self deprecating voice makes it easy to enjoy Matadors The emails are generally short streams of self consciousness and vary enough in mood and subject matter to not get tiresome as we patiently wait to discover his relationship with the mysterious recipientI doubt Matadors could ever get published in the traditional world which makes it a good example of the value of self publishing Unfortunately the old bugaboos of sloppy proofreading are here too with the predominant culprit missing or transposed words Fix that up and this story transforms into a fine specimen of independent storytelling and publishing
