    Hank Fitzpatrick's life is what you might expect from a manchild stumbling his way from his teens to his thirties in small town Indiana: hypersexual, drunk, stoned, prone to fits of spontaneous masturbation, occasionally Catholic, and accidentally well-intentioned. Caught in the crossfire of raging hormones, bad decisions and family tragedy, Hank is just a boy not yet ready to be a man.

    In his tragicomic debut - equal parts dark comedy, nostalgia trip, and rousing tale of redemption - manchild and small-town Indiana resident Hank Fitzpatrick stumbles through and beyond adolescence in the late 1980s. Hypersexual, drunk, stoned, occasionally Catholic, accidentally well-intentioned Hank doesn’t know it yet, but his life is about to implode in spectacular fashion.

    When we last saw Hank Fitzpatrick in Exotic Music of the Belly Dancer, he seemed to be finally figuring things out. He had a girlfriend. He had a life. But his secrets were yet to be discovered, his demons yet to be exorcised, and soon he would have no choice but to face them both. Gone is the boy we came to love, replaced by a man we struggle to like. Welcome back to Empire Ridge, Indiana. Making Out with Blowfish is fear and loathing in the suburbs as told in Brian Sweany's uniquely uninhibited voice.
