Rip's a good natured loser, trying to be happy despite a bad marriage and major poverty...until the day he helps a stranger in need, winds up at a weird picnic in the woods, parties too hardy, falls asleep-

Because when Rip wakes up, the Earth has-changed. Everyone and everything he knows has-vanished. Wife, family, dog, home, even his country-gone. Rip's terrified, trapped in a new world, pulled out of place, torn out of time...

But what seems to be the gods' cruelest joke-might be their greatest gift...
