0 Reviews
A Kurt Vonnegut for the '90s, an earthbound Douglas Adams. James Boylan's debut novel is wildly inventive, original, and deeply, outrageously funny. When lovesick Edith Schmertz takes an ill-fated leap out of an airplane on Easter Sunday, she sets in motion an inexorable chain of events, sending many human orbits spinning wildly out of control.
