The Unexpected Guest

A heartwarming memoir of a couple who takes in a homeless man and the life-altering effect the experience has on all three of them. For years, “Fisher King Mike” wandered L.A., preaching to his people. On occasion he’d share an open mic night with Michael Konik, who offered a curious and sympathetic ear, particularly when the Fisher King lamented his separation from his wife (who he claimed was Selena Gomez). As the pair began to trust one another, confusion and distance gave way to something that astounded them both. The Unexpected Guest gives love profound new dimensions with its story of family, friendship, and the meaning of home. Konik offered food and a pair of pants when his new friend came by, and wondered how much he owed the troubled Fisher King―a question all of America faces with the nation’s ongoing homelessness crisis. When Konik and his wife gave Fisher King Mike a place in their home, handy as he turned out to be with household projects, they witnessed a guest become a caretaker. Gone was the man who gave sermons about his supposed estate next door to Kanye West. Gone was the man drifting through life. What each never saw coming was their own transformation and the lessons they’d learn about what it means not only to be good people, but simply to be human. Praise for The Unexpected Guest “Heartwarming, compassionate, and well-crafted, The Unexpected Guest gives voice to those rarely heard, compels you to look closer when you want to look away, and reveals the joy of caring for others.” ―Pete Earley, New York Times–bestselling author of Crazy: A Father’s Search Through America’s Mental Health Madness, 2007 Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize “What a pleasure to read a book that is quick in pace, absent of cynicism, and packed with conversations and stories we desperately need. The Unexpected Guest exceeded my already high expectations. Michael Konik does something that few journalists, let alone politicians even attempt to do. He humanizes the people who are without shelter. I won’t be soon forgetting “Fisher King Mike.”“―Dave Zirin, The Nation “A deft meditation on the ordinary magic that happens when you open your heart and home, one small step at a time. Poignant, timely, compulsively readable. Konik’s story of family lingers long after the last page.” ―Jack McCallum, New York Times–bestselling author of Dream Team “Honest and entertaining, this book forces readers to confront the systems of inequality in which we are all implicated.” ―Kirkus Reviews

The world I live in and the unexpected visitor

The play which gave rise to this short story was written in November 2020, during the time of social isolation, originally bearing the title “Quem está aí?” (Who’s there?). In that month, more than 13,000 deaths were recorded in Brazil, a number that, despite being very high, marked the lowest figure since the curve began to fall in August. It was in this downward trend that the expression ‘new normal’ appeared, which predicted a new way of living, where there would be more compassion and respect for nature to keep similar situations to the one that forced us into confinement from reoccurring. Travelling back and forth from madness to despair, denialism to reality, politics to faith, “The world I live in and the unexpected visitor” incites a discussion of the way in which material accomplishments are often prioritised instead of valuing the simplicity of life and posits that perhaps it is going too far to consider this a ‘normal’ life. With references to the dystopias “Animal Farm” and “1984” by George Orwell, the story shows that, despite our eternal search for a better world, there will always be the balance between good and bad, compassion and greed. Even so, giving up will never be the best option. Apathetic inertia further strengthens those who wish to maintain the status quo of a society where only a minority has the luxury of enjoying themselves at the expense of others. It also reinforces the importance that education and the arts have in forming a more just society. Treated by many as superfluous or even subversive activities, they give us the skills we need to be able to see through the lies that people try to make us believe as if they were unquestionable truths.

Churchill s Unexpected Guests

During the Second World War over 400,000 Germans and Italians were held in prison camps in Britain. These men played a vital part in the life of war-torn Britain, from working in the fields to repairing bomb-damaged homes. Yet despite the role they played, today it is almost forgotten that Britain once held POWs at all. For those who worked, played or fell in love with the enemies in their midst, despite restrictions and the opinions of their peers, those times remain vivid. Whether they took tea on the lawn with Italians or invited a German for Christmas dinner, the POWs were a large part of their lives. This book is the story of those men who were detained here as unexpected guests. It is about their lives within the camps and afterwards, when some chose to stay and others returned to a country that in parts had become a hell on earth.
