The Last Bad Job

It’s a hell of an assignment: Five months on a New Mexico desert compound to cover the next Jonestown. For one reporter, it could be a career-maker. But when a cult member close to him kills herself, he decides to run for it, and begins a dark and comic journey through sex, drugs, cults, suicide, the end of the world, and what comes after it. From the author of the widely acclaimed novels Another Broken Wizard and What Smiled at Him comes The Last Bad Job-a book the late Norman Mailer touted as showing “something that very few writers have; a species of inner talent that owes very little to other people.” “No one has done the Apocalypse better! From the opening scene to the final shocking line, this book is full of gruesome twists, profound insights, and absolutely brilliant writing. Definitely one of the best books I’ve read in the past ten years.” -Boston Literary Magazine “…a kaleidoscope of destruction…it’s difficult not to giggle even as characters tell their horrific stories, the death and destruction nullified by the absurdity of the context. Whether the author is making a statement about apocalypse, religion or about finding meaning in life, I may be hesitant to make a claim. However, I was happy to warm my hands with the bonfire he created and chuckle at the world’s misfortunes…I don’t think I’ll ever look at an apocalypse the same way.” – Papyrus Independent Author Reviews
