Baker & Taylor
Recently divorced and frequently unemployed, the nameless narrator drifts from one odd job to another meeting sexual fetishists, drug dealers, prostitutes, criminals, and dead cows.

Perseus Publishing
Please chronicles the life of an emotionally numb man who drifts through a hallucinatory world of parties filled with celebrity wannabes, addictive relationships, and jobs that demand he become someone other than who he is. Both a dark satire of the contemporary obsession with the “mediascape” and a sophisticated critique of an increasingly uncaring society that offers fantasy in place of real experience, this first novel by a rising talent paints a compassionate picture of one man’s search for something real to embrace in life.


Blackwell North Amer
In short, sharp episodes, Please chronicles the life of a young man who drifts through a hallucinatory urban world filled with celebrity wannabes, addictive relationships and jobs that demand he become someone else. The only thing he cares about is finding his ex-wife, who seems to exist only in his memories now.
