This is an entertaining and interesting novel set in the context of the American recession and decline of American manufacturing; as one character says, the US is now just tourism and shopping. The style of the writing - somewhat sparse and thin - reflects the middle-aged businessman's emptiness and loneliness. In one way, it is a "The Death of the Salesman" meets "Waiting for Godot" for the 21st century.
