A Case Study of Werewolves is an eclectic book of lyrical and narrative poetry written predominately in the style of cultural satire, commenting on the 'absurdity' of the present day American social landscape where the author painstakingly, profoundly reflects and ruminates about the meaning of it all (the tragic comedy of it all, using biting humor to break down the rigid hypocrisies of systematic bureaucracies and political and social class systems) while clearly isolated and alienated out of a sort of 'quiet desperation,' and the things the solitary soul must do in order just to get by and to get through life; a dichotomy between the active-conflict and concept of faith and one's fate and how one futilely tries to get by on a day by day basis.
