Pauline’s Perils of
Perplexity is a satire for teens, and college age adults. It’s a satire on the Perils of Pauline; it’s a parody of mysteries, and romances, and
it’s a comment on the times. It’s not
easy to find a job right out of college today, let alone in the ‘80’s the time
period in which this novella is based.
People forget there was a “great recession” going on in those times too,
the time period in which some of today’s teen’s parents or even their
grandparents grew up.
farce novella concerns the question of self-esteem, as its theme. What is
self-esteem? How do you define it? Our
heroine, Pauline, a 22 year old, discovers her own-self-esteem by working out
her “calling,” trying on different career paths to see, which one fits, and
stretching herself by striving towards various accomplishments. She also tries
on different romantic relationships in hopes of working toward the career path
of wife, and eventually mother. This mystery of life, this coming-of-age,
perplexes Pauline, as she handles all the various humorous perils that she
finds herself in the middle of.
hero Matt Grayson, 13 years older than Pauline is already established in his
career. In fact, he has already made one
major career choice. He not only acts as
Pauline’s mentor, but he also is on his own voyage of discovery, all the while
Pauline and Matt solve a mystery that’s not really a mystery, and conduct a
romance, that’s not really a romance.
