Description
Echoing a narrative line that includes Kurt Vonnegut and Joseph Heller, William Giraldi's Busy Monsters has been hailed as one of the most exciting fiction debuts in years. Penned with a linguistic bravado that explores the diaphanous line between fiction and fact, this very funny, very inventive debut novel (The New Yorker) has at last revived the great American picaresque tradition.
