Claremont, CA – August 15, 2015 – Pelekinesis is proud to announce the release of Sean Pravica's Stumbling Out the Stable, an irreverent trip down the turbulent backroads of early adulthood. Seamus, a college student with aspirations to hitch hike aimlessly after graduation, grows increasingly unsettled with the vagueness of the future. His friend Jamie, on the other hand, revels in its unpredictability. Together, they party with colorful characters, raise hell at their anarchistic workplace, and wax philosophic about life's hidden glitches. After a series of accidents intersect their lives, the boys stumble to find their footing as it becomes clear that not everything in life can be avoided.

KC Mead-Brewer in Cleaver Magazine says that Stumbling Out the Stable "crackles with the nervous energy of this crossroads between order and chaos, between the dream of freedom and the fear of aimlessness..." while author Sean Bernard says, "Sean Pravica's debut novel is a sincere depiction of wanderlust for those stuck in place, of searchers who don't know quite what they’re searching for."

Stumbling Out the Stable by Sean Pravica will be available November 27, 2015 through Small Press Distribution, Baker & Taylor, Bertrams, directly from the publisher's website, and in fine local bookstores worldwide.
