Overview

Bakopoulos has invented a man for all rainy seasons a horny, heartbroken cousin of Richard Ford s Frank Bascombe. Tom Piazza
A winning distraction, a smart entertainment. New York Times Book Review
A clairvoyant when it comes to the Starbucks orders, a renegade when it comes to bureaucracy, Zeke asks almost everybody he meets, Why are you so unhappy? The answers he receives a mix of true sadness and absurd complaint become the core of an obsessive project, The Inventory of American Unhappiness, a project that becomes all the more personally meaningful as he follows steps outlined in a women s magazine on finding the perfect mate. Incisively tapping the voice of one of the most charming and deluded narrators to come along in years, Dean Bakopolous captures our zeitgeist with lacerating wit and a big heart, confirming Jonathan Miles s (author of Dear American Airlines) claim that there s no such thing as unhappiness when you re holding a Dean Bakopolous novel.
Hilarious and heartfelt . . . This funny-sad novel seems to take elements of the author s own life . . . and twists them in a funhouse mirror with delightful results. NPR
