As Chicago goes mad with panic, Zajak awakens from his coma and wanders into the streets on his way home, although home is only a vague concept in his muddled brain. Wandering into the Loop Area of Chicago, where panic has precipitated looting, murder, rape, and destruction, Zajak is guided by a personal Guardian Angel who sees him safely home to wife and son, who have themselves had to deal with crisis. Classic references are interspersed with 1980s pop culture and baseball lingo in a stream of consciousness novel that is true to its locale, but shows the city in less-than-perfect light....

    stream of consciousness style set in Chicago - emotionally impactful

    An odd combination of Ulysses, baseball and the end of the world, located in soon-to-be-destroyed Chicago.

    Moments of brilliance, and an inspired premise. Unfortunately interspersed with some very dated and tiresome misogyny.
