it was amazing
Read in August, 2009

Walters takes an edgy look at the desperate situation many an average Joe finds themselves in during this rocky roller coaster of financial times we are in right now. Out of work and faced with the prospect of losing his house and marriage, Matt makes some reckless choices while at a 7/11 one evening that take him spiraling down into the world of drugs and all of its various sides. Walters takes shots at everyone and everything in this dazzling satire, making it akin to a Catch 22 for the 21st century.
