“Kirk Farber has a style very similar to Chuck Palahniuk, with offbeat observations, a view of our world through a slightly distorted lens, and a tone that’s … hilarious and tragic at the same time.” — Garth Stein, author of The Art of Racing in the Rain A touching, almost cinematic, debut novel featuring the eccentric, slightly disturbed, and unique character Sid, who finds himself—among various other darkly comic scenarios—obsessed by the mysterious European postcards that arrive in the mail from his ex-girlfriend.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 11, 2010 – Sid Higgins, the appealing, self-deprecating narrator of Farber’s poignant, funny debut, has been receiving postcards from his old girlfriend Zoe. Unfortunately, the whimsical Zoe has disappeared, and the postmarks on the cards are more than a year old. Though he doesn’t really expect to find her, Sid travels to Europe in search of Zoe. Since Sid works for a travel agency, a slick telephone operation that uses the amusingly named Randomizer to dial potential clients, the trip is easy to arrange. Sid plaintively and self-mockingly relates his interactions with his boss, Steve; his neighbor, “Gerald the Post Office Guy”; and, most of all, his dog, Zero, whose deftly described postures convey so much, though perhaps not quite as much as Sid reads into them. Sid’s older sister, Natalie, a doctor who provides welcome perspective on Sid, is by turns affectionate, irritated, supportive, and occasionally fed up. The reader is likely to feel the same.

Customer Reviews


Not like any book I've read. I enjoyed this one. It was different, not predictable. Thank you to the author, you're great. I recommend this book to anyone who's looking for a truly good book.

Sid & Zoe

Fast paced, Sid is one hell of a character... Can totally relate with him... Good book. Buy it! Youll be hooked instantly

Good, but left me wondering

The postcards -- I'm still just as confused about them as I was in the beginning of the book. I realize that some writers leave things for you to figure out, but this is too important to leave this up to the reader, in my opinion. Did I miss something? Other than that, I really enjoyed the book.
