Description

Winner of the Independent Publisher Book Award for Best Visionary Fiction: "A lyrical, thoughtful, viral meme of a book" (Christopher Moore, author of Noir). It all starts when a mischievous artist kicks off a game of graffiti tag by painting the phrase, "Uh-oh" on an overpass. Next, an anonymous interlocutor writes back: "When?" Then someone slyly answers: "Just a couple of days." But exactly what will happen in just a couple of days? Readers don't have long to wait before Professor Blip Korterly is arrested and his molecular biologist friend Dr. Flake Fountain is drafted into a shadow-government research project to develop the ultimate weapon: a biological agent that will render its targets unable to understand symbols, thus disrupting humanity's ability to communicate. Soon, an accidental outbreak turns into a merry-hearted, babble-inducing apocalypse that will either destroy humankind or take it to the next step in evolution. Praised by Tom Robbins who said it "may be the most unusual, the most original novel I have ever read," Tony Vigorito's debut novel is an underground hit that ponders what might happen at the end of time. "Vigorito's . . . irreverent, whimsical style . . . has attracted a cult following...?he final apocalyptic vision is a twist not seen since Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle. Recommended." -Library Journal
