From the author of the critically acclaimed memoir, A Working Stiff’s Manifesto, comes this darkly entertaining first novel. Jake Skowran has been laid off from his job as a factory supervisor. The work he is offered is a lot less than legal, but he has little choice except to take it. He is going to carve off a piece of the economy or die trying.

"Levison is the real deal . . . bracing, hilarious and dead on."—The New York Times Book Review

From the Hardcover edition.
