Special Order—Subject to Availability


In this fiendishly original new novel, Mark Leyner is a leather-blazer-wearing, Piranha 793-driving, narcotic-guzzling monster who has potential rivals eliminated by his bionically enhanced bodyguards, has his internal organs tattooed, and eavesdrops on the erotic fantasies of Victoria's Secret models -- which naturally revolve around him.

Leyner's jet-propelled roller derby through the cultures of celebrity, cyberpunk, and rabid egotism is exhilaratingly bizarre, exhaustingly funny -- and you'd better hope it's just fiction.

About the Author

Praise For…

"Leyner's brilliantly discontinuous humor...begs to be read aloud to friends and strangers alike -- if only you could figure out where to stop." -- Village Voice

"Leyner is a twisted wizard, a genre-busting virtuoso, working at the outer edge of narrative convention." -- Jay McInerney

"Leyner is an original and immensely amusing writer as well as a provocative social critic." -- Washington Post Book World
