A caustic and hilarious love story set in 1990s New York.

Bob Fingerman's Beg the Question tells the story of Rob and Sylvia, two twentysomethings navigating the labyrinth of New York City life. Imagine a cross between Seinfeld and Caligula, set in New York, and you'll have an idea of Fingerman's caustic wit. Beg the Question follows Rob & Sylvia's relationship through all of its ups-and-downs, from courtship to marriage, rentals to real estate salesmen, public sex to unwanted pregnancies, and everything in between. Performance art, extended families, the comic book industry and Screw magazine are just a few of the other topics subjected to Fingerman's satirical microscope. Featuring an introduction by Penn Jillette.

Review: Beg the Question

User Review  - Stephen Hines - Goodreads

I've read this twice now and it was even better the second time around. If you love great art, comedy, and intelligently neurotic characters then you should read this. Be forewarned: there are sex scenes, curse words, and the protagonist looks just like me. GULP! Read full review
