Meet Walter Snow - a depressed and lonely writer who has been suffering from a nine-year stint of writerís block. It is the granting of a strangerís bizarre request that provides Walter with the inspiration and true-to-life material he needs to rejoin society and rejuvenate his writing career.

In a chance encounter, Walter meets Clyde Potts, a beautiful and savvy woman well-versed in the art of manipulation. Almost immediately, Fox Harris, her equally calculating and reckless partner-in-crime appears. With little effort, Clyde and Fox compel Walterís participation in the execution of their plans, despite the risks involved and the absence of full disclosure of any details. Although relatively harmless at first, the pranks escalate into a battery of attacks on corporate icons that have the potential to result in severe consequences.

Unfortunately, the inevitable success of Walterís book is predictable, and the author chooses to leave some issues, such as the nature of the true relationship between Clyde and Fox, unresolved. Despite this, however, Kinky Friedman masterfully tells the story of a lonely New Yorkerís journey from isolation to reentry into society to a booming writing career.
