Carousel Court is the story of Nick and Phoebe Maguire, a young couple who move cross-country to Southern California in search of a fresh start for themselves and their infant son. They arrive at the worst possible economic time. Instead of landing in a beachside property, they find themselves cemented into the dark heart of foreclosure alley, surrounded by neighbors being drowned by their underwater homes. Nick and Phoebe both devise their own plans to claw their way back into the middle class and beyond.
"Wonderful, brilliant, and touching"
The Delivery Man is a thrilling and astonishing debut - a scary, fast-paced, and illuminating portrait of the MySpace generation. It is a love story set against the surreal excess of Las Vegas - and the artificial suburbs, gated communities, and freeways that surround it - where broken lives come to seek new beginnings and casinos feed the lust of tourists and residents alike. Ultrasophisticated local kids grow up fast and burn out early.
