Harold Silver, a Richard Nixon Scholar, has spent a lifetime watching his younger, taller, and more successful brother, George. But Harry knows that George has a murderous temper, and when he finally loses control the result is an act of violence which hurls the two brothers into entirely new lives. A savage and dizzyingly inventive vision that penetrates the dark heart of contemporary America to tell a darkly comic tale of 21st-century domestic life and how one deeply fractured family might begin to put itself back together.

Perfect comic timing
I usually prefer reading, but in this case, the audiobook was just amazing.
Nathan Osgood has perfect comic timing, whether impersonating the insecure protagonist, his indifferent mother or his wise-beyond-his-age cousin.

A real man in a surrealistic situation
He asks for a lot of empathy, Harry, the protagonist of this book. He is the man you hate to love, just like his favorite politician, Richard Nixon is the man people love to hate.What happens, especially in the beginning of the storry is not an everyday story, but the author persuades us to believe it. Sometimes funny, sometimes moving, but always bizarre.
And just the right number of 'actors' to make it possible to follow the story by listening while walking.
