Summary (From the publisher):

Meet Todd Foster, a second-year law student at Wayne State University.

Living in the crumbling core of the city of Detroit, Todd tries to reconcile the world he inhabits with that championed by his Harvard-educated academic advisor and the affluent parents of his girlfriend, Sarah Lane. Under the unsteady influence of larger-than-life Tartarian, a cocaine-snorting, pot-smoking social work major at Wayne State on the ten-year plan, Todd locks horns with his uptight roommates, the junkies who live next door, and Boyd Crane, the Lanes' beau-of-choice for their naive daughter.

Todd Foster is a young man we all know. He is a twentieth-century pilgrim struggling with life's big questions. But he is increasingly tripped up by the unpleasant realities that rain down upon him, ultimately precipitating a foolish act of symbolic rebellion with near-tragic consequences.
