Product description

Review

When it comes to explaining to me my own too often baffling nation, there's no one writing today whom I trust as completely as Jess Walter. His intelligence and sympathy and great wit inform every page of his terrific new novel (Richard Russo)

Darkly funny, surprisingly tender ... Walter ... has an abiding faith in the ability of human beings to be decent (Los Angeles Times)

A deliciously antic tale of an American dream gone very sour ... sharp, wide-eyed, soulful (Washington Post)

A ridiculously talented writer (The New York Times)

It made me laugh more than any other book I've read this year (Nick Hornby)

From the Back Cover

What happens when small-time reporter Matthew Prior quits his job to gamble everything on a quixotic notion: a Web site devoted to financial journalism in the form of blank verse?

Before long, he wakes up to find himself jobless, hobbled with debt, spying on his wife's online flirtation, and six days away from losing his home. . . . Until, one night on a desperate two a.m. run to 7-Eleven, he falls in with some local stoners, and they end up hatching the biggest--and most misbegotten--plan yet.

The cover of this paperback edition comes in three different colors: green, blue, and orange.
