The Sugar Frosted Nutsack: A Novel
Mark Leyner
978-0-316-60845-9, $24.99

From the bestselling novelist and quirk collector, a romp through the excesses and exploits of gods and mortals.

High above the bustling streets of Dubai in the world’s tallest and most luxurious skyscraper, reside the gods and goddesses of the modern world. Since they emerged 14 billion years ago from a bus blaring a tune remarkably similar to the Mister Softee jingle, they’ve wreaked mischievous and hilarious havoc on mankind. Unable to control their jealousies, the gods have splintered into several factions led by the immortal enemies Shanice, XOXO, La Felina, and Mogul Magoo; and Ike, an unemployed butcher from New Jersey, is their current obsession. Ritualistically recited throughout the world by a cast of drug-addled bards, The Sugar Frosted Nutsack is Ike’s epic story. A raucous tale of the unexpected fallout and laugh-out-loud misadventures of gods and men, it’s a wildly fun, wickedly fast gambol through the unmapped corridors of the imagination.

About the Author: Mark Leyner is the author of two novels, three story collections, and three nonfiction books, and he cowrote the movie War, Inc. with John Cusack. He lives in New Jersey.
