Former Texas resident and current Rolling Stone editor Julia Holmes earned glowing acclaim for this darkly humorous dystopian novel. Ben has just returned from a war waged against a nameless enemy. To avoid being nabbed by police and forced to work in a factory, he'll need to find a wife. But to do that, he must wear a bachelor's suit - and the tailor won't make one for him.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicholas | 2/15/2014

    " Seriously, the best book I read last year, read it in one sitting and was totally blown away, Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' meets 1984. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Avra Fox | 2/1/2014

    " Small, sad, strange, lyrical. I quite liked this book and will read more by Ms Holmes as she writes it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 1/15/2014

    " A fun read, but I ultimately felt like the dystopian qualities were in place to distract from narrative and syntactic/stylistic shortcomings. This may have worked if the "in situ" feeling of the work gave way a little bit and we learned more about the world that Holmes created, but we never leave that narrative position, making the reader look for something else to be engaged by and finding, unfortunately, not much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robyn | 1/12/2014

    " Absolutely original. And guess who drew that cover?!?! Starts with a Robyn... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 1/7/2014

    " Proof that my love of dystopic literature only goes so far. I feel like nothing really *happened* in this book, which isn't really true, but it was more vignette-y than linear plot-ty, and I like all plot all the time. I wish there had been more about why the society was set up the way it was. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 12/19/2013

    " Reminded me of Beckett. Which from me is not a compliment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 12/15/2013

    " Weird and wonderful! Review forthcoming... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Meghan R. | 11/14/2013

    " There is a mediocre short story hiding somewhere inside this tedious novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claire | 11/4/2013

    " The originality of this novel is astonishing. Must read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles Cohen | 10/20/2013

    " Unbelievably sad. You just want to shake everyone in this book and scream "SPEAK TO EACH OTHER!" right in their face. So yes, the title makes a lot of sense. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessica | 3/28/2013

    " I abandoned this book after 70 pages. I hated it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Eileen | 10/16/2012

    " tried and tried again to read this. i dont mind the dystopian setting, but completely agree with another reviewer-its almost too depressing. I have since given up trying to finish reading it. it was just tedious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom C | 6/5/2012

    " Excellent voyage into a world completely from the the mind of Holmes. Reminded me of Kafka and Orwell. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vic | 5/7/2012

    " More Orwellian than Kafkaesque. "
