Plans for a Mushroom Radio: A Novel in Fifty Fits

Plans for a Mushroom Radio: A Novel in Fifty Fits Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Set in an uncertain year in the future, Plans for a Mushroom Radio is a hilarious allegory of the collision between radical ideals and corporate culture. In this dark, uproarious novel, cereal is replacing literature on the shelves of libraries, cats and dogs have become interbred, and insomnia has been declared an epidemic. To prove to his friends at the cereal factory that he too is a hard-core insomniac, Francis Hurd pretends to speak in tongues and thus sparks an explosive journey toward selfhood. Nash LaValley, retired schoolteacher, librarian, and radical subversive, has decided to falsify her death in order to evade federal authorities. But how to tell her family? The chemistry between Francis and Nash, neighbors and opposites, completes Plans for a Mushroom Radios hilarious portrait of humanity colliding with its own inventions.
