INCOMPLETE WORKS by Noah Goats is the hilarious record of an over-educated, under-motivated young man’s attempts to deliberately not fit in at a rural agricultural college to which his parents have sent him, in order to, I assume, give him a taste of the real world, or just as likely, get him comfortably out of their hair.

Noah Goats is an office drone who writes in his spare time. He's married and has four kids. Now that he has them, four seems like kind of a lot. He also has a big white dog that looks like a wolf and wants to run away to live with the coyotes who populate the mountains near Goats's house. There is a cat named Remi skulking around the family home as well.
