From an "astonishing" writer (Toni Morrison), the savagely funny story of a couple who unexpectedly come into some money in a wealth-obsessed America deranged by Mammon.A bag of money drops out of the sky, literally, into the path of a cash-starved citizen named Graveyard. He carries it home to his wife, Ambience, and they embark on the adventure of their lives, finally able to have everything they've always thought they deserved: cars, guns, games, jewels, clothes -- and of course sex, travel, and time with friends and family. There is no limit except their imagination and the hours in the day, and even those seem to be subject to their control.Of course, the owner of the bag is searching for it, and will do whatever is necessary to get it back. And, of course, these new riches change everything -- and nothing at all.Darkly hilarious, Processed Cheese is both satire and serious as death. It's a road novel, a family story, and a last-girl-standing thriller of once-in-a-generation vitality and inventiveness. With the clarity of a Swift or a Melville, Wright has created a funhouse-mirror drama that puts all the chips on the table and every bullet in the clip, down to the last breathtaking moment.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Stephen WrightPublisher: Little Brown and CompanyPublished: 01/21/2020ISBN: 9780316043373Pages: 400Weight: 1.40lbsSize: 9.20h x 6.30w x 1.30dReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 09/16/2019Kirkus Reviews 10/15/2019 pg. 28Library Journal 11/01/2019 pg. 84Booklist 12/15/2019 pg. 90
