About the Book

Blip Korterly kicks off a game of graffiti tag on a local overpass by painting a simple phrase: Uh-oh. An anonymous interlocutor writes back: When? Blip slyly answers: Just a couple of days. But what happens in just a couple of days? Blip is arrested; his friend, Dr. Flake Fountain--a molecular biologist--is drafted into a shadow-government research project conducting experiments on humans. The virus being tested--cleverly called the Pied Piper--renders its victims incapable of symbolic capacity; that is, incapable of communication. Is this biological weaponry? What would happen if it were let loose on the world? Does a babbling populace pose a threat or provide an opportunity for social evolution?

This novel's absurd, larger-than-life characters speak in exuberant prose that is as satirical as it is playful, as full of implications as it is full of mirth. It's no wonder Just a Couple of Days has become an underground cult classic. This grassroots phenomenon will reach even more soon-to-be fans in its newly updated Harvest edition-- complete with an excerpt from the author's next book!
