When one of those irritating self-help books actually gets it right, then unnatural and worrying times are just around the corner ...While the rest of the country is joining the new HappinessTM cult, Edwin (the wiry, grey-suited, low-level editor at US publisher Panderic Press) is in trouble.
A cartel of drug, alcohol, tobacco and drug-rehab bosses have a contract out on him. It's all the fault of the mysterious Tupac Soiree, and his book What I Learned on the Mountain.
But who is Tupac? And how can Edwin stop the world from succumbing to this plague of HappinessTM?
Will Ferguson has created a comic masterpiece, a brutal satire of modern times.
