The Futility Experts
by Margaret Broucek


Overview -
Feeling trapped in a stagnant marriage, working a dead-end job, and desperately coveting the last good parking spot, Tim Turner decides to do what any middle-aged man not in his right mind would do; reinvent himself as a 21 year-old Marine sniper named Rusty. What could possibly go wrong? At the same time, Davis Beardsley--a professor of zoology with an unhealthy obsession for imaginary creatures--helplessly watches his chances for tenure circle the drain when a new department head takes a less-than-favorable view of his teaching methods. Throw in a decrepit Sasquatch, a Romanian adoptee hell-bent on destruction, and a trio of incontinent lapdogs, and you have the makings of a laugh-out-loud hit. Delivered with deadpan wit and keen insight, The Futility Experts is sure to appeal to fans of Jami Attenberg, Emma Straub, and Joshua Ferris.
