Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lucinda spends eight hours a day at The Complaint Line, listening to anonymous callers air their grievances. One frequent caller captivates her with his ruminations and self-reflections. Lucinda and the Complainer arrange a meeting and fall desperately in love. However, Lucinda tears herself away from The Complainer to practice with the alternative band where she plays bass. The lead singer, Matthew, is a confused young man who works at the zoo and recently kidnapped a kangaroo to save it from ennui. The band's talented lyricist, Bedwin, is suffering from writer's block. Hoping to re-charge the band's creative energy, Lucinda "suggests" some of The Complainer's philosophical musings to Bedwin. When Bedwin transforms them into brilliant songs, the band gets its big break. The only problem is The Complainer. He insists on joining the band, with disastrous consequences for all.

Synopsis:

Bestselling author Jonathan Lethem delivers a hilarious novel about love, art, and what it's like to be young in Los Angeles. Lucinda Hoekke's daytime gig as a telephone operator at the Complaint Line--an art gallery's high-minded installation piece--is about as exciting as listening to dead air. Her real passion is playing bass in her forever struggling, forever unnamed band. But recently a frequent caller, the Complainer, as Lucinda dubs him, has captivated her with his philosophical musings. When Lucinda's band begins to incorporate the Complainer's catchy, existential phrases into their song lyrics, they are suddenly on the cusp of their big break. There is only one problem: the Complainer wants in.
