About the Book

Blind Banana Daiquiri is a guitarist accused of schizophrenia who spends his nights performing his greatest hits as mood music for strip shows. But growing up normal-sized in the Land of the Smalls (island cave dwellers who never grow taller than 4’6″) taught him a thing or two about normalcy, and as a schizophrenic, the idea that fiction can be stranger than the truth.

The winner of the 10th Annual 3-Day Novel Contest is about the coming of age of a big outsider, dreaming of love’s labours lost and the distant promise of stardom, who would really rather we all stayed Small.
