An amazing visionary first novel about today's disenfranchised, MTV twenty-something generation and their baby boom parents, by the author of the hugely successful Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture--a Tom Robbins for the '90s who has made the cynical post-Reagan era his own. A 20-year-old's journey around America, Canada, and Paris helps him deal with the bewildering influences that confront him.
