About this title

Synopsis:

While shadowing the wife of an affluent urologist, a hapless private eye falls in love with her. When the doctor turns up dead, the P.I. finds himself caught in a crossfire between the boys from the Inquisitor's Office and gangsters who operate out of the back room of the Fickle Muse.

From the Back Cover:

From the celebrated author of Motherless Brooklyn,
a wry, satiric parable of a hardboiled man out of time

Gumshoe Conrad Metcalf has problems-not the least of which are the
rabbit in his waiting room and the trigger-happy kangaroo on his tail.
Near-future Oakland is an ominous place where evolved animals function
as members of society, the police monitor citizens by their karma levels, and
mind-numbing drugs such as Forgettol and Acceptol are all the rage. In this
brave new world, Metcalf has been shadowing the wife of an affluent doctor,
perhaps falling a little in love with her at the same time. But when the
doctor turns up dead, our amiable investigator finds himself caught in the
crossfire in a futuristic world that is both funny-and not so funny.
"Marvelous . . . Stylish, intelligent, darkly humorous, and highly
readable entertainment."-SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER

"Lethem has talent to burn."-THE VILLAGE VOICE LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
AUTHOR OF THE FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE
Jonathan Lethem is the author of six novels, including
National Book Critics Circle Award-winning Motherless Brooklyn
and The Fortress of Solitude. He lives in New York City.
