Synopses & Reviews
"Just a Couple of Days is a most intriguing book; well-written and
daring. It's the kind of ground-breaking work we look for..." Independent Publisher
"Tony Vigorito's brilliant novel is a Dr. Strangelove for the biotech
century, a witty and wise end-of-the-world romp that manages to be
optimistic even joyous yet cynically dystopian at the same time. Just a Couple of Days is savvy, wickedly funny, and profoundly disturbing. An absorbing, thought-provoking read." Richard Heinberg, author of Memories and Visions of Paradise
"One is immediately impressed with the book.... Vigorito laces his
writing with a satirical touch, adding levity to the heady subject
matter." Columbus Alive
"[An] unpredictably adventurous and singularly ambitious novel.
Especially recommended reading for anyone with a literary interest in
the surreal..." Wisconsin Bookwatch
"[A] humorous apocalyptic novel...reminiscent of Tom Robbins...Vigorito
has a similar facility in putting together colorful and creative
metaphors. The pace is quick and engaging with occasional diversions
into deep philosophical thought...hilarious...a parody of society,
particularly the institutions of control...Just a Couple of Days
provokes thought and laughter and shows that freedom is, indeed, a
bigger game than power." Zenzibar Alternative Culture
