From the author of Voice of the Blood comes a terrifyingly funny new tale of Michael Squire, twenty-three, nerdy as hell, and losing his mind in the face of a hilariously hostile world. Fortunately he's got his favorite Eighties music close at hand... More
Meet Squire. He's your average music-obsessed twenty-three-year-old Portlander, juggling a job as an internet support technician, an indie comics gig, and a long-simmering crush on his best friend, Lise. He smokes too much weed, drinks too many cocktails, and watches too much Star Trek. And when his co-workers, baristas, and friends begin to turn on him one by one, his good-natured paranoia expands into a chilling, terrifying certainty about the end of the world. A darkly comic novel about a young man who slowly but surely loses his grip on reality, but never on his taste in music.
