The Ask by Sam Lipsyte



What is The Ask, you ask?

Well. It's Sam Lipsyte's new darkly satirical novel, a follow-up to up his previous success, Home Land. The Ask tells the story of an absolute anti-hero, Milo, who is newly unemployed and finds himself greatly disappointed with the results of his mediocre, uninspired life.

Lipsyte, a true lover of language, writes in scathing and cheeky prose that is most certainly unintended for the weak.
Think Bukowski. Or as the Quarterly Conversation nimbly suggests, the book is "like Dr. Seuss, if Dr. Seuss had been hazed by Bukowski".
