For 13 years Presner has worked the graveyard shift at Tyson's 24-Hour News and Smoke. He is also an attorney (non-practicing), a playwright (unproduced), a weightlifter (non-Olympian), and a reader of detective novels (not literature). Presner is grieving for his sister, Sara, an actress, who died twelve years ago. Presner has written a play, Tales of Presner the Remarkable, which is really about his late, disgraced pal from law school, Norm Fitzhugh, a charismatic scammer who helped him when Sara was dying.

Mostly, Presner has viewed life as a Chekhovian comedy, wherein characters take themselves more tragically than circumstances warrant. He draws upon art, drama, philosophy, and Jewish folklore to ease his angst. And then one day he walks into a Continuing Ed acting class and meets Lisa Caner, the greatest local actress since Sara.

Presner the Remarkable is about the stories we tell ourselves after life spins out of control. It is a tragicomedy about one man's quarrel with fate. It is a story about starting over, this time for good.
