From the Publisher
This book is primariy about people who live on the "fringe" of society. Minimum wage workers, bikers, new agers, etc. Books like Even Cowgirls Get the Blues and Another Roadside Attraction by Tom Roggins, The World According to Garp by Jon Irving, Fear and Loathing by Thompson and even Naked Lunch by Burroughs are influences. The characters bounce around like colorful rubber balls off the narrator-paddle. He is the constant, the voice of reason, but he is influenced at times also. At times, funny, but sometimes the string breaks and tragedy ensues.
