(From the publisher):
After his editor's son accidentally drowns the sole copy of his latest manuscript in the bathtub, Mark Dunn (a character in his own novel) makes the best of a bad situation. He will tell the story of three-legged circus performer-cum-deodorant magnate and humanitarian Jonathan Blashette through the only part of the text that survives: the footnotes. The result is a riotous and irreverent romp through recent history that finds in the margins of a fictitious life a surprisingly revealing angle on who and what we consider newsworthy, and why.
