Praise for the Book …


“Cameron A. Straughan’s The Surreal Adventures of Anthony Zen is a sublime piece of surrealist literature. The absurd life of Anthony Zen can make you cry tears of mirth and think about the fallacies of society. “


“The author’s writing prowess is immaculate. The author incorporated a lot of themes and literary devices, all the while keeping it light-hearted and fun to read. One writing style I liked was paragraph repetition. A phrase or event was smoothly repeated in the next scene but with different characters involved. It was hilariously genius.”




“A one-man anthology of surreal antics scaled up until every installment is a supernova of absurdity.”

Editorial Book Review – The Surreal Adventures of Anthony Zen



“A mind-bending journey of extremely well-crafted nonsense”



“All 23 short stories have the same theme, mainly the “how-to” deal with a work/life balance, dealing with family, and maintaining the kid spirit that exists in all of us while living an adult life. The Surreal Adventures of Anthony Zen is a great book if you are looking for a quick read.”
