"After his wife Sarah dies, K. loses his metaphorical capacity, becoming so wedded to the notion of clarity that he infuriates everyone, friends and strangers alike. When he intervenes in an armed robbery, K. finds himself both an inadvertent hero and the star of a new reality television program. Together with Claire, a grocery store clerk with a sharp tongue and a yen for celebrity, he travels the country, ruffling feathers and gaining fame at the intersection of American politics and entertainment. But soon, through a conflagration of biblical proportions, he discovers that the world will fight viciously to preserve its delusions about itself"--

In this age of vote-casting based on complex issues reduced to meme, it's refreshing to meet K, who can only take things literally.

i liked Curries pace and style. The first part of the book was different from most and I wondered which way the story would go. Soon some sanity blended into the plot and what had worried me before now had me laughing. Currie is a very intelligent and talented writer. I look forward to his next projects.

I love Currie's wit and quirky characters, but the relationships in this book felt a little flat to me. Currie is also usually excellent at balancing funny and melancholy at the same time, but at times the book is too melancholy, even bitter.
