The misadventures of Dominick, an "irresistible" couch-surfing one-percenter, begin in this "quirky and delightful" novel (Providence Journal). Dominick is always just passing through. Following the sun and the idle rich from resort to resort, he lives the free and easy life of a professional houseguest with nothing and nobody to tie him down. But when he decides to spend the winter on a small island off the New England coast, the off-season proves to be anything but quiet. Suddenly, despite his best efforts to remain detached from the rest of the human race, Dominick finds himself becoming involved with the travails of his geriatric hosts, Atticus and Lydia, and their coterie of oddball friends and local denizens-and going to some highly unusual extremes in the process. But the more he becomes enmeshed in the lives of others, the more he begins to rethink his own meandering life, especially when he somehow becomes a suspected terrorist. Sooner or later, everyone needs a place to call home-even if you really aren't planning on staying long-and just because you live a carefree existence doesn't mean you don't care. From the author of the Jungle Beat mysteries set in American Samoa, New Jerusalem News is a delightful blend of intrigue and wit featuring a truly unforgettable character. "What a great beginning to a new series. You'll laugh out loud but also enjoy Dominick's asides on class warfare, crows, the past and cold, wet, provincial New England and New Englanders. The plot leaps and twists and delightsEnright's off and running with Dominick, and he's terrific."-Providence Journal
