The Failure by James Greer
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Guy Forget is a 20-something drifter with brains, good looks and absolutely no ambition except to get rich without having to work. His best friend, Billy, is a professional dog walker who ties dogs to the rear bumper of his car and drives very slowly. The Failure is a fairly straightforward story, but the manner of its recollection is anything but. It begins at the end and proceeds in similarly non-linear fashion to a conclusion that will surprise everyone.
