About this title

Synopsis:

I'm living in this world. I'm what, a slacker? A "twentysomething"? I'm in the margins. I'm not building a wall but making a brick. Okay, here I am, a tired inheritor of the Me generation, floating from school to street to bookstore to movie theater with a certain uncertainty. I'm in that white space where consumer terror meets irony and pessimism, where Scooby Doo and Dr. Faustus hold equal sway over the mind, where the Butthole Surfers provide the background volume, where we choose what is not obvious over what is easy. It goes on...like TV channel-cruising, no plot, no tragic flaws, no resolution, just mastering the moment, pushing forward, full of sound and fury, full of life signifying everything on any given day...

Review:

"An orgy of wacko yammering."--Washington Post

"A generous panoply of magical thinking and cracked metaphysics."--Entertainment Weekly

"A fugue of exuberant ineffectuality, an exploration of the slim possibilities of life before death and after college."--Boston Phoenix
