Melding Pynchon with the Beats, Pincio sends his heroes Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady on a pulp sci-fi adventure in a satire of contemporary capitalism. Coca-Cola sells dreams and blames their customers for maiming caused by exploding bottles. Neal Cassady chases Marilyn Monroe. In Pincio’s 1950s, history is lost in fantasy, and the result is sheer entertainment.
