Summary
After his fiancee dumps him to search for a legendary giant squid with an oceanographer, somewhat-famous memoirist Charles Homar is devastated -- and lands in jail (briefly) after shooting up the oceanographer's boat. To win back her heart, Charles travels across the U.S. (and just across the northern border) seeking counsel from actual and mythical creatures including Bigfoot in Canada, space aliens in Seattle, and a professional bodybuilder in New Jersey. He even writes about it for a weekly magazine -- installments of which form this debut novel. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
