Om Red Meat Cures Cancer
What would you do if you were a few months from collecting early retirementa pension for which youd sucked up and sycophanted almost twenty yearswhen your obscenely overweight and extremely crass boss told you that if you didnt raise the companys market share by the end of the year, youd be out on your ass without a dime? If youre Sky Thorne, Senior V.P. of Tailburgera fringe fast food chain whose specialties are batter dipped, deep-fried meat patties and 96-oz. beef-flavored shakesyoull get to work on as many harebrained, desperate schemes as you can think of. And if that means launching a marketing campaign that asks the public, Why just abuse your body when you can torture it? then damn it, thats what youll do! Because Sky Thorne is ready to fight dirty and do anything necessary to earn the pension he sees as the reset button on life, liberty, and the pursuit of unadulterated deep-fried happiness.Red Meat Cures Cancer is a hilarious and poignant romp through a world of excess, and marks the arrival of a great new satirical voice in American literature.From the Trade Paperback edition.
