Have you ever gazed deeply into your navel and contemplated: an emergency physician as an alleged mass murderer; pus; a flatulating mammoth; Mark's tribulations getting his Gospel published; athlete's foot as history's first public health crisis; the genitalia of Michelangelo's David; Churchill, DeGaulle, and FDR relaxing at iconic Rick's Café Américain; a wayward pelican interrupting a Yankee-Red Sox game; telepathic tortoises and pedicuring piranhas; Cagney, Bogie, and Edward G. Robinson rescuing us from life's current perfidies? These are but samples of the ironical, cynical, and metaphorical black humor contained in this tome. It's a glimpse through the diaphanous layers of the author's imagination. It's an imagination of another time from another place. It's an imagination that has been carefully molded by varying aliquots of Big Apple naiveté, emergency medical mayhem, madness & mirth, and a persistent fatalistic optimism.

When teens Zorie and Lennon, a former couple, are stranded in the California wilderness together, they must put aside their differences, and come to terms with lingering romantic feelings, in order to survive.
In this romantic dramedy from the author of Alex, Approximately, a teen girl’s way-too-ordinary life is driven off the beaten path when she’s abandoned in the wilderness with her worst adversary—the boy who broke her heart. Ever since last year’s homecoming dance, best friends-turned-best enemies Zorie and Lennon have made an art of avoiding each other. It doesn’t hurt that their families are the modern day, Californian version of the Montagues and Capulets. But when a group camping trip goes south, Zorie and Lennon find themselves stranded in the wilderness. Alone. Together. What could go wrong? With no one but each other for company, Zorie and Lennon have no choice but to hash out their issues via witty jabs and insults as they try to make their way to safety. But fighting each other while also fighting off the forces of nature makes getting out of the woods in one piece less and less likely. And as the two travel deeper into Northern California’s rugged backcountry, secrets and hidden feelings surface. But can Zorie and Lennon’s rekindled connection survive out in the real world? Or was it just a result of the fresh forest air and the magic of the twinkling stars?
