Description: ALARM carries on the narratives of fictional character Mick O'Grady, introduced in Mike Daily's first novel, Valley (Bend Press, 1998). RAY GUN MAGAZINE wrote, Mike Daily packs so many stylish smash cuts into Valley, MTV dulls by comparison.

ALARM finds Mick O'Grady settling into unsettlement in the weeks after the hit on the World Trade Center: he's jobless, watching the news, shaky in his relationship, cautious with friends, curious with strangers, daydreaming. He's lost. But as the story progresses, Mick's actions become more purposeful. He needs to eat. He needs to sell some of his used CDs. He gets a job. He gets two jobs. What is the meaning of this?

ALARM is a lyrical novel (and accompanying audio artifact) of archivalism, relationship concerns and rediscovery of hope in the post-9/11 era that reads like a love letter to a friend and a promise to the future.
