Miss Misery: A Novel

Front Cover
Gallery Books, Jul 1, 2006 - Fiction - 400 pages
Lonely Brooklyn twentysomething David Gould has problems: blown work deadlines, an obsession with an Internet temptress he's never met in the flesh, and, worst of all, a hedonistic double attempting to steal his identity. Full of gripping characters, mood-altering detail, and a killer virtual soundtrack, Miss Misery is a genre-defying exploration of growing up and going out in the new century. As he rockets the reader from cyberspace to nightclub bathrooms, from the heart of New York City to the suburbs of Utah, Andy Greenwald unspools a fast-moving, funny story about the timeless need to become the main character in your own life.
