    In this darkly funny and often unsettling novella, Mike Heppner (The Egg Code, Pike's Folly, The Man Talking Project) introduces listeners to Nada Zilch, a social omnivore and reality TV star with a taste for staying up all night and pushing people's buttons. Always the loudest, smartest voice in the room, Nada has chosen her victim for the night: Billy Gallagher, an NYU professor who is struggling to put his own excesses behind him.
