About This Book

The narrator is a college graduate who for several years has been futilely looking for a job, still living near his alma mater. Nothing works, nothing interests him, and all he does every day is to surf the Internet at home or to send resumes in response to advertisements for workers. After spending a night with a student at his alma mater whom he meets for the first time at a bar along with others, he accidentally hears a rumor about “Bukowski,” who supposedly closes his shop and disappears on rainy days. The protagonist then returns home to tell “Turtle,” the student who has now settled herself in, of this mysterious personage. This leads to an odd search on a long summer day, as absurd as an idle joke. While the narrator chases after “Bukowski,” he is soon shadowed by yet another person. What is the meaning of all this search? Does this world mean anything to any of these characters?

Based on a witty and sprightly conception and a unique style, this work recounts the story of young people in this age of mass youth unemployment, an era with only loss and no growth. The first novel by a budding writer, it captivates an imagined reality with an unparalleled style without falling into rash anger or easy resignation.
