This novel’s absurd, larger-than-life characters speak in exuberant prose that is as satirical as it is playful, as full of implications as it is full of mirth. It’s no wonder Just a Couple of Days has become an underground cult classic. This grassroots phenomenon will reach even more soon-to-be fans in its newly updated Harvest edition-- complete with an excerpt from the author's next book!
About the Author
Praise For Just a Couple of Days…
PRAISE FOR JUST A COUPLE OF DAYS
"Just a Couple of Days may be the most unusual, the most original novel I have ever read. It reminds me of my own first novel, Another Roadside Attraction, in that it almost completely defies what we've been taught that a novel ought to be... If philosophical ideas were harpoons, Tony Vigorito could turn every whale in Ahab's ocean into floating pincushions..." —Tom Robbins
"A lyrical, thoughtful, viral meme of a book. Read it!"—CHRISTOPHER MOORE, author of LAMB and A DIRTY JOB
"This is the kind of literary enjoyment so many people say you shouldn’t have, and then worry about when you start to draw larger conclusions from . . . I’d go so far as to say that this novel is ‘folk heroic’ and should be read by anyone who still values their capacity to think for themselves."—KRIS SAKNUSSEMM, author of ZANESVILLE
