Connor McKnight, former acolyte of film, Zen, and Japanese literature, is not unaware that these avocations are wildly different from his present occupation (fledgling celebrity journalist). Meanwhile, his longtime girlfriend, the fashion model Philomena, seems curiously remote, and soon decamps for the West Coast.

Then there's the sister with whom he shared a flamboyantly addled childhood, who now matches her brilliance for theoretical abstraction with a compassion for world suffering, imperiling her own well-being.

These and other anxieties can scarcely be assuaged by his trio of flirting obsessions - a gorgeous stripper, a screenplay in progress, and the nature of a meaningful future - or by his principal ally and best friend, a monkishly neurotic and militantly vegetarian writer.

With the holidays fast approaching, and a female admirer stalking him by email, Connor gropes his hapless, hilarious way toward not so much salvation as self-preservation. Download and start listening now!

    " Good easy to read book. I actually bought it 2nd hand to have whilst cloistered and quitting smoking. So it served it's purpose. It's a tad boring for my liking; the first McInerney book I've read after hearing about him in BEE'( Bret Easton Ellis) books. I couldn't help but make the comparison between the two authors. Overall, this book has a lot of mileage and can be reread a few times ( as it is fairly un memorable)- probably good for a beach read/ holiday read. "
