Summary "In landlocked Gainesville, Florida, in the hot, fraught summer of 1999, a college dropout named David sleepwalks through his life--a dull haze of office work and Internet porn--until a run-in with a lost friend jolts him from his torpor. He is drawn into the vibrant but grimy world of Fishgut, a rundown house where a loose collective of anarchists, burnouts, and libertines practice utopia outside society and the law. Some even see their life as a spiritual calling. They watch for the return of a mysterious hobo who will--they hope--transform their punk oasis into the Bethlehem of a zealous, strange new creed."--from cover, p. [4].
