|25-year old Ivy League transplant, Tal, ventured West wide-eyed and earnest in his desire to write. Instead, he found a real job, lost the real job, and is now adrift on floes of temp jobs. A shadow at the mercy of his stuntwoman-girlfriend, who looks to L. Ron Hubbard for her own answers, he steals a week to escape from L.A. to New Orleans where out of the serendipitous chaos of Mardi Gras his best friend from college appears. Land Morales is brilliantly mad, but despite a once inseparable friendship with Tal, the two have careened into altogether different orbits. The empty space between them is spanned only by Lands quixotic last words to Tal - that he was embarking on a search for a community. Thrown together again, they thrust the reader into a jaunt that bebops through the conundrum of identity and faith both have grappled with while attempting to ward off the terrific delirium tremens flush of the American Century. *Author: Nasr, Sid *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 408 *Publication Date: 2007/03/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.00 x 0.91 inches|
