"A ferociously inventive comic novel" (Vanity Fair) from the prize-winning author of Let the Dog Drive and Big Bang.

The trade paperback edition of David Bowman's prize-winning first novel, Let the Dog Drive, has developed a cult following. Now Bowman's exuberantly praised second novel -- a hard-boiled comedy about love, abduction, and child care, set in a future where electricity has disappeared and fertility is on the wane, but human passions are as messy as ever -- is also in trade paperback.

Praise For Bunny Modern: A Novel

"A ferociously inventive comic novel."
Vanity Fair

"A lively, whacked-out, often surprisingly moving novel...In this brave new world, there's room for poetry and slapstick, for laser sarcasm and flat-out lovesickness."

"Told in one of the most assured voices in contemporary American fiction, Bunny Modern is a deliciously twisted amalgam of screwball comedy, cutting satire, eerie millennial unease, and sentimental romance."
Seattle Times

"Readers who get the feeling they've bought a nonrefundable ticket on a runaway bullet train...are best advised to strap themselves in and hang on for dear life: once the train has left the station, there's no turning back."
New York Times Book Review
