"A deliciously antic tale of an American dream gone very sour...part noir gumshoe, part average Joe, [Matt Prior] is a sharp, wide-eyed, soulful observer, with a keen eye for the layers of bureaucracy and doublespeak."--Washington Post
"Would be so sad if it weren't so funny, and so funny if it weren't so sad. . . . Compassionate, witty and drawn from today's heartless world, it's a terrific book."--Arizona Republic
"An extremely funny novel...a very smart meditation on what's gone wrong with both the US economy and those of us who are expected to keep it running...cleverly designed and immensely entertaining."--Christian Science Monitor
"The funniest way-we-live-now book of the year."--Time magazine
"The novel has warmth, and its protagonist emerges as a bourgeois Everyman of the downturn."--The New Yorker
"[Walter is a] deft humorist and catastrophist. . . . dangerously astute."--Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Walter is one of my favorite young American writers. . . . [Financial Lives] made me laugh more than any other book published this year."--Nick Hornby, Parade
"A real find....the ultimate something-for-everyone-don't-skip-must-read."--Sara Nelson, The Daily Beast
"[A] superb farce."--Maureen Corrigan, NPR's Fresh Air
"Cynical yet warm, this novel about a financial reporter (with a failing website written entirely in blank verse) is a delight."--The Must List, Entertainment Weekly
What happens when small-time reporter Matthew Prior quits his job to gamble everything on a quixotic notion: a Web site devoted to financial journalism in the form of blank verse?
Before long, he wakes up to find himself jobless, hobbled with debt, spying on his wife's online flirtation, and six days away from losing his home. . . . Until, one night on a desperate two a.m. run to 7-Eleven, he falls in with some local stoners, and they end up hatching the biggest and most misbegotten plan yet.
