What if somebody finally wrote to his high school alumni bulletin and told . . . the truth? Here is an update from hell, and the most brilliant work to date, by the novelist whom Jeffrey Eugenides calls "original, devious, and very funny."
The Eastern Valley High School Alumni newsletter, Catamount Notes, is bursting with tales of success: former students include a bankable politician and a famous baseball star, not to mention a major-label recording artist. Then there is the appalling, yet utterly loveable, Lewis Miner, class of '89—a.k.a. Teabag—who did not pan out.
Home Land is Teabag's confession in all its bitter, lovelorn, unforgettable glory.
