Summary
"The Failure is a picaresque novel set in Los Angeles about two guys who conceive and badly execute a plan to rob a Korean check-cashing store in order to finance the prototype for an impossibly ridiculous Web 3.0 technology. The main character, Guy Forget, is a twenty-something drifter with brains, good looks, and abolutely no ambition eexcept to get rich without having to work. His best friend Billy is a professional dog walker. Along the way we meet, among others, Guy's Midwestern parent, his theoretical-physicist brother, his girl friend Violet McKnight, and his secret nemesis Sven Transvoort, who hates Guy with unusual passion for reasons that are not immediately clear. Using elements of pop culture, tech jargon, and noirish satire, the book attempts to answer the question not enough people ask themselves on a reular basis: A, I a failure?"--p. 4 of cover
