A heroic young man is in pursuit of a spoiled rich girl, a career, and a manageable portion of the American Dream.
"The work of a writer of the first magnitude. His sheer writing skill is nothing short of amazing. The preternatural force, grace, and self-control of his prose recall Faulkner.... McGuane is a virtuoso." -- Jonathan Yardley, The New York Times Book Review
"McGuane shares with Celine a genius for seeing the profuse, disparate materials of everyday life as a highly organized nightmare."
-- The New Yorker
"A novel of wisecracks and puns and ordinary objects invested with legendary potency."
-- Geoffrey Wolff, Newsweek
