Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles: A Novel
Written in a rambling narrative style, jumping back and forth from one topic and venue to another, the author has penned a novel sure to capture the imagination. Their random, vicious lovemaking sessions will titillate those with prurient leanings. Moreover, the hardcore drinking and resulting consequences are both curious and entertaining. Overwhelmed by growing difficulties in his life, the troubled writer escapes to a Caribbean island ostensibly to write another book, but pragmatically to leave his melodramatic life behind.

Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles
Free-wheeling—and at times both moving and hilarious. On the day he breaks up with Charlotte, Emma comes down to the island, and eventually Ron confesses his relationship with Charlotte. Emma is understandably pissed, so she leaves, and Ron tries to commit suicide by driving his Jeep off a pier. Meanwhile, his manuscript is discovered and published—and it sells 3 million copies.
