- About the Author
White, New Jersey wastoid Sean Kerry is fresh out of jail, working at a dead-end burger stand on the shore. His Black parole officer, James O'Keefe, has threatened to kill Sean if he gets high again, and ruins O'Keefe's chances for a promotion. At an adjacent hotel, a South Asian couple, the Angrywalls, are seeing their marriage tested by poor business and racist harrassment from the anonymous Dotbusters. When Sean's co-worker disappears, all four of their lives will collide and be changed forever, and asses are going to end up in slings, as they say in Jersey. Part crime, part neorealist, and very funny, Motherfuckerland will leave no reader feeling impartial.
