Goodreads asked Cyrus Alderwood:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Cyrus Alderwood My most recent book (coming out this week) is titled "A Man Called Doosh." It is about a guy in his mid-twenties and his pregnant wife that are surviving in this economy, like most recent college grads. Eddie Duchesne has a job he's not thrilled with and isn't doing what he hoped for since coming out of college. The bills are mounting and suddenly their healthcare plan gets cancelled and to get another they have to pay double the premium, which they can't afford. So Eddie, aka The Doosh, decides to take a weekend job chasing a childhood dream of being a wrestler. It's a slapstick comedy that I ripped right from the headlines of today's news. Young people aren't getting the jobs they wanted in this economy, they are struggling, student loans are due, and many still haven't had the ability to afford to leave home. This book is a comedy that just tries to deal with those issues as the main character tries to hang onto the concept of "dreams" instead of becoming bitter in this less than friendly economy.
