Nathaniel Pike, a headstrong billionaire, is purchasing a piece of federal land in New Hampshires White Mountains and turning it into a huge, inaccessible parking lot. Orbiting Pike and his aspirations is a cast of perfectly flawed eccentrics: Marlene, who is shy and vulnerable but also a budding exhibitionist; Stuart, Pikes assistant, who is Marlenes husband and a failed writer; and Heath, who films Marlenes public nudity and turns her into an Internet star. In this grand tale of the folly of the modern world, Mike Heppner skewers the extravagance of wealth, and the class that grows up around that wealth, even as he casts a humane look at the people involved.From the Trade Paperback edition.
