About the book:

“As soon as I read the first paragraph I knew I wasn’t going to be able to sleep till I’d finished. Because it was too real. Novels have endings, thank God.” —Stoya

You can almost make just enough money to buy heroin every day by jacking off for people on the Internet. This is America. That makes you an entrepreneur. But how do you stop being human? Is it possible? What if you can’t? What then? In this relentless, heart-shattering first novel, Jonathan Reiss gently takes your hand and leads you on a grand insider’s tour of the nicest parts of hell, where giving up on everything is extremely hard work.
