JJ's Eyes: A Documentary by David Michaels
What could be more lucrative than a documentary about James Joyce featureing a dying man readin "Ulysses"? Stephen, David, Richard, and Liz are four friends who believe that art can deliver them from the disappointments of their lives. As they face turning thirty, they must grapple with the fact that their collective crowning a coomplishment was a high school video production of Hamlet - in drag, of course. Will their documentary save their friendship? Will it make them famous? Will it at least get them to turn off their computers and get out of the house on Saturday night?
This satiric novel is a caustic, melancholy, and sometimes-hopeful examination of human relationships in a technological age.
