All Jack Schlitz wants is a second chance at success. When he finds it, as a purveyor of “natural products” with his partners in MacNatural Organics, it proves a velvet prison he half-heartedly longs to escape. Along the way to his epiphany, and beyond, the novel presents a comic view of one microcosm of our marketing-driven consumer culture, where all that really matters is a sale.
