Product description


“A parable for our times, full of absurdist humor."—Joseph Wambaugh

“Darryl Ponicsán explores the deepest mysteries of all with this engrossing novel, an often funny, sometimes sad, but always magical investigation of culture, art, and, most of all, life. Ponicsan has somehow turned his observations into a what-happens-next page turner.”—Michael Connelly, author of The Night Fire

A metaphysical mystery tour twisting through cultural time zones and exploring the depths of the heart with surprising revelation, uniquely textured by balanced wit and hard-earned wisdom.”—Thomas Sanchez, author of Mile Zero and Rabbit Boss

"This is small town satire at its best. An oblivious wealthy newcomer gets trapped into a battle over the sound of leaf blowers unaware that the real battle is over his soul. A fast-paced, funny, and satisfying read where no one gets off easily.”—Ada Limón, author of The Carrying, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award

“The author of Last Flag Flying puts the hero of his latest novel in an odd predicament. . . . Literature lovers will appreciate the references to Mary Shelley and her circle, the original eternal sojourners.”—Booklist

Praise for Last Flag Flying
“Darryl has once again captured the camaraderie and complexity of male bonding, as he did so brilliantly in The Last Detail. Three familiar characters, now some thirty years later, with a dubious history and an undesirable task ahead of them are what dominate the fascinating and satisfying story in Last Flag Flying.”—Bryan Cranston

"Ponicsán delivers an irreverent, acerbic, but nonetheless poignant look at the true nature of loyalty. Recommend both novels and the movie."—Booklist

Praise for The Last Detail:
“Remarkably good… The writing is superb, the pace headlong, the irony tempered with a curious gentleness.”—Cosmopolitan

“A salty, bawdy, hilarious, and very touching story.”–Variety

“The first underground triumph of the ‘70s.”–San Francisco Sun-Reporter

“One of the ten best novels of the year.”–Philadelphia Inquirer

“Honest, heart-wrenching.”–The New York Times

“One of the really excellent novels we will draw this year, and Ponicsán… proves himself not only a master but a model of dialogue.”–San Francisco Sunday Examiner and Chronicle

“A lean, funny, bitter book.”–Boston Globe

“[A] gem of a first novel… fast-paced… [The] dialogue often is hilarious..”–Fort Worth Star

“An accomplished writer with a sure storyteller’s touch.”–St. Louis Post Dispatch

“Will make any serviceman say: ‘Sure, that’s the way it was.’”–Newsday
