Spokane, Washington, is nearly perfect for most people, but Jack Fitzpatrick is not one of them. Hours after graduation and armed with his final paycheck from his nemesis, Jack heads for Southern California. Dreams are a dime a dozen in the City of Angels. Broke, barely scraping by, and hating his life as a temp, L.A. is definitely not what Jack expected. But after reading "Best Paying Jobs of 1987" in Time magazine, he decides to go after the only one he thinks he has a shot at: institutional bond broker. Once frustrated that his dazzling lack of experience keeps getting in the way, Jack is ecstatic to land a job at Freedom Capital, a no-name firm with a hire-anybody mentality. Pumped to be on his way to his first few million, Jack eagerly engages in the challenged ethics of his new employer. When a series of innocent events lands him in prison, he's sure things can't get any worse. He would be wrong.

The author is fantastically enthralling.
The tone, the irony, the timing.
Laugh out loud
I have a copy of the book, but having the author read it to me is priceless.
Hilarious first person account of a young man from the Pacific NW who is determined to prove to his awful neighbor lady that he is a force to be recokoned with.
Narrator was spot on perfect, echoing stereotypes of modern America.
the white couch, or the sticker bush at the river.
The ending was not what I expected, but truly loved.
