Guy Grand, an eccentric billionaire prankster, is rich enough to do whatever he likes. And what he likes is to carefully execute projects where he can cauterize by ridicule what the rest of the world ignores: Complacency, greed, corruption, and idiocy. Determined to "make it hot for people," Grand spends his billions staging a series of hilarious, sometimes bewildering stunts, lampooning along the way the American holy cows of money, status, power, beauty, media, and stardom.
"One of the coolest books I've ever read. Terry Southern, the dark comedic genius behind Candy and the films Easy Rider and Dr. Strangelove, wrote this rebellious book about a billionaire prankster determined to use his money in outrageous ways. It definitely influenced my sensibility when I read it as a teenager, in an unforgettable way." --B.J. Novak
In a series of stories that are shocking, sexy, charming, and ultimately unforgettable, Miranda July explores the hearts and minds of characters who are desperate for human connection and yet don't know what to do when it actually happens.
"These are beautiful, powerful, funny and emotional stories by a real artist. It's one of those books that when I read it, I was mad at myself that I hadn't read it earlier." --B.J. Novak
The legendary Deep Thoughts and New Yorker humorist Jack Handey is back with his very first novel - a hilarious, absurd, far-flung adventure tale. "Are you a fan of books in which famous tourist destinations are re-purposed as unlivable hellholes for no particular reason? Jack Handey's exotic tale is full of laugh-out-loud twists. A reliably unreliable narrator and his friend, who is some other guy, need to get out of town. They have a taste for adventure, so they pay a visit to a relic of bygone days - a travel agent - and discover an old treasure map."
"Jack Handey is best known for his series of Deep Thoughts collections, but this novel has a lot of the funniest stuff he's ever written—or even that I've ever read. On a pure big-laugh-per-page count, it's got to be one of the of the funniest novels ever written. Plus, Jack Handey reads the book in the innocent, straightforward voice he made famous on Saturday Night Live." --B.J. Novak
