James Hynes is the author of three New York Times Notable Books of the Year. That same publication praises Kings of Infinite Space as "unspeakably funny!" This off-beat novel satirizes an experience ubiquitous to modern times- office life. With a defeated sigh, ex-college professor Paul Trilby faces the downward spiral that is his existence. After his wife and three subsequent girlfriends dump him, and he loses just as many jobs, he's sure he's a pawn in some vast conspiracy. Worse still, he may be losing the only thing he has left-his mind.

Professional reviews

"Former literature professor Paul Trilby has slipped several rungs in the ladder of life, now toiling as a technical writer in a bureaucratic haze for the State of Texas and living in a run-down apartment on the bad side of town. His mundane life is unfortunately enlivened by bothersome appearances from a dead but demanding cat, and a series of bizarre encounters that no one else seems to notice. Adam Grupper provides a straight read for the narrative and for the voice of Trilby, enveloping the main character in a sea of cynical mediocrity. His collection of twangs for the other characters provides color, if not Texas authenticity. Grupper's delivery is a good match for Hynes's dark humor. N.M.C. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
