In the near future, America is crushed by a financial crisis and our patient Chinese creditors may just be ready to foreclose on the whole mess. Then Lenny Abramov, son of an Russian immigrant janitor and ardent fan of “printed, bound media artifacts” (aka books), meets Eunice Park, an impossibly cute Korean American woman with a major in Images and a minor in Assertiveness. Could falling in love redeem a planet falling apart?

I finished this book about 3 months ago and I can't stop thinking about it. Maybe it has something to do with current events, but it seems like the world this book takes place in is not so far off from where we're headed. On the other hand, this book is like nothing else I've ever read. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for something fresh and thought provoking in their fiction. It's a completely original work that sticks with you.
Gary's third novel is a significant read in contemporary fiction that causes tears and laughs, sometimes simultaneously.
