Dilettantes and Heartless Manipulators

by Nate Waggoner

Jimmy aspires to rap stardom, or at least to make something. Josie wants out of her relationship with Phil. Josie’s parents look back at an escape from a cult and subsequent lives of frustration. Jimmy’s brother Elvis writes fan fiction in his room. It’s a book about growing up, relationships, arrested development and artistic ambition.
