Selected by Indie Booksellers for the June 2009 Indie Notables
“Joe Meno is basically America's best writer right now, even though most folks don't know it yet. In The Great Perhaps, obviously, he's going after the Great American Novel. The Caspers -- whose surname, characteristically, is a gentle allusion -- are a family afraid of clouds, afraid of sexuality, afraid of the world. Meno's best trick is taking cartoon scenarios and filling them to the brim with pathos, but there's also a race with the French to find the biggest living squid and a mysterious man made out of clouds. Joe Meno just keeps outdoing himself.”
-- Imogen Park, Pegasus Downtown, Berkeley, CA


Description
The sky is falling for the Caspers, a family of cowards. When the parents decide to separate, this family is forced to appreciate the cloudiness of this modern age.
