In search of meaningful connection, Clayton Draper moves into The Complex, an Austin residential development sponsored by Kool Kola. There he comes face-to-face with new modes of self- absorption and a rampant materialism he can’t resist. In his journal entries, he looks for guidance from Schopenhauer, Snagglepuss, Aldous Huxley, Howlin’ Maggie, The Flintstones, Willa Cather, Winston Churchill, the voice of God, and many others. He quits his job, treks to Paris and back, and wrestles with a feral cat, while struggling with a sniping nemesis and a way too charismatic neighbor. A sharp, quick-paced debut, full of erudite irreverence.
