The absurd is that which is not true, however, truth can be intermingled with the absurd. In his stories “Grand Stand-In” and “Worst-Case Scenario”, Kevin Wilson uses absurdity to show the raw truth of dissatisfaction and distressed loneliness in his characters’ lives. Through this, the characters define themselves and, as people naturally do, justify their own thoughts.

This story highlights the fact that humans are often influenced to do that which they would not normally do, especially when they are alone. This idea of persuasion is present in many works of literature, such as Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness and Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray. In both, the protagonists tend to isolate themselves, as they fear who they have become through their greedy actions. Their isolation makes them more prone to be negatively influenced, which ultimately leads to their destruction. This is proven through the men’s internal struggles over whether to rebel, to be opportunistic, or to surrender to despair.
The skill of the novel exists in its probing of the gap between what belief enjoins and the emotional disorder with which it cannot hold discourse.
