“...hilarious, page-turning prose....An absurd, funny first novel, similar to DeLillo’s White Noise, or a less nightmarish version of Kafka.”—Diego Báez, Booklist

Thrust into the bizarre labyrinth of DC society, John MacManus struggles to rescue a bankrupt nonprofit while starting a family. Wackiness ensues.

Reviews / Endorsements

“Satire with a bite that leaves a mark, deftly accomplished fiction about the world of money and art, book lovers and writers, philanthropists and misanthropes. Once word about this entertaining new novel gets around Washington, he’ll never eat lunch in that town again.”—Alan Cheuse
