Suburban regular guy Earl Keese confronts the yawning pit of chaos in the persons of Harry and Ramona, a younger couple who have just moved into the only other house on their dead-end street. Literally overnight, Earl's painstakingly controlled world is turned upside down. Soon he is engaged in guerilla warfare with his new neighbors, who seem to threaten the very fabric of his carefully constructed reality.

Praise For Neighbors: A Novel

"A wonderfully funny and mysterious book."
-- The New York Times Book Review

"A flawlessly crafted morality play constructed out of the most subtle minutiae of perception and expressionæas if Henry James had written Waiting for Godot."
-- The Nation

"Neighbors offers a version of reality skewed just enough to give paranoia a good name."
-- Time
