In a surreal exile on the floor of the Atlantic, a young man faces his own death and his wife's infidelity.

Precise and beautifully crafted, this modern fable is rich with humor and deep thought.

What a wonderful, weird little book. Insightful, dark reflections on modern medicine, love, and finding peace. The author has clearly spent a lot of time alone meditating on the meaning of life. He blends profound observations with hilarious, wry commentary, in a very gently flowing prose - this is strangely appropriate given that a fair amount of the action (such as it is) takes place on the floor of the ocean. I'm not exactly sure what to compare this book to: Vonnegut on quaaludes, maybe? Regardless, it's a good one - enjoy!
