Michael Missing, the name of eleven different young men in various states of unrest, is the linked but unrelated protagonist of these wry and angry talesa hit man, the cabin boy of 19th century French pirate Jean Lafitte, erstwhile baseball hero and the man who would be President of France, a frustrated salesman who loses an evening with Captain Kirk in the unrequited hope of laying the town slut of Scarsdale. Readers will shudder as, to their dismay, they recognize themselves, or at least part of themselves, in the naïve and angry young man who sincerely wishes things were different, and who regrets he has never overheard someone say, Michael is a real good guy. A criminally funny and perceptive literary debut.
