"[A] dark, satirical comedy. . . . Written with the same kind of deadpan humor Levison used so well in his first book."—USA Today "A gleeful satire. . . .

"He was a new car dealer," Jake retorts. Jake’s got six months of unemployment left before he’s dead broke and the locks get changed. Life has turned into one big downgrade. It has downsized and hardened him. He’s up for anything. The economy is pain, lies and silliness, and he is going to carve off a p...

Oh, dear. Oh, dear. I shall be too late. - The Rabbit Does that sound like you? Always frantically rushing from one place to another? This attractive wrist watch may not help you arrive on time, but if you wear it you can be fashionably late. The delightful Wonderland watch features characters, images, and text from Lewis Carroll's classic "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. " As the watch ticks, cards move around Alice (see illustration). The band contains colorful graphics of The Queen, The Rabbit, and The Mad Hatter, accompanied by time-related quotes from the book. The Wonderland watch is plastic with a metal backing (sort of like a Swatch) with a printed polyurethane band and has an accurate quartz movement. It comes in a very attractive metal gift box, making it a spectacular un-birthday gift.
