Synopses & Reviews
The twisted, eccentric characters in this hilarious metaphor-stretching novel are ripped straight from today’s tabloids: a man obsessed with Spiderman, whose ir-responsibility has reached such epic proportions that he literally reverts to being a newborn; and a homecoming queen who secretly gives birth in the locker room during halftime, then claims the infant was kidnapped by aliens. Foos’s satirical genius strikes funny, bittersweet chords about women, men, and responsibility gone haywire.
The author of three novels, Laurie Foos grew upon Long Island and currently lives in Massachusetts.
A book that puts the fun back into dysfunctional.
