With the rapid approach of the end of his professional life, Marcus O is quietly wondering what's next. Well first there's a workplace nemesis he aspires to humiliate. And then there's a style-conscious student whose shallow interests seem calculated to aggravate Marcus alone. And finally there are the nights scouring the web and composing attractive answers to profile questions generated by a seniors' online dating site he's recently joined. Set in a near future where everything is pretty much the same--or maybe a touch worse--Oldness; or The Last Ditch Efforts of Marcus O presents a satiric portrait of a contradictory man in a complicated place and time whose reality may be just over the horizon.

A lecturer of English literature at the University of British Columbia, Brett Josef Grubisic is the author of the novels The Age of Cities, This Location of Unknown Possibilities and From Up River and for One Night Only. He currently resides in Vancouver.
