Jupiter is crazy, and not only because he lives on top of a grain elevator. As a sixty-year-old ad exec, he knows people are his living, but he can't bear being with more than two human beings at a time. Unfortunately, his one psychic need is for a family, but its a little late to start one.Additional complications trip him up - the Village is about to evict him, and he's dating a twenty-five-year-old woman that's stomping roughshod over him. He's haunted by a child he accidentally killed years ago and his best friend is Gilgamesh, a dead Sumerian king who gives bad advice. The reader will treasure the funny, tragic ride through Jupiter's life, even if Jupiter doesn't.Jupiter and Gilgamesh is more than a promising debut by a hugely talented writer; it is a compelling novel of the first order. Matt Devon's hermetic life goes public and all hell breaks loose. How does a man live an authentic life anymore? You'll find out on this exhilarating ride through Uruk and West Texas. Do yourself a favor, buy this book, get in on the secret before everyone else knows what you soon will: here is the future of contemporary fiction."John Dufresne, Author of: No Regrets, Coyote
