Summary: Ben, a gay textbook writer, wants only to retire. However, in this riff on the Faust legend, Caleb, his red-haired publisher, tempts him to write just one more series--a series that instead of showing life in the United States as a 50s sitcom, will show it as it really is, complete with racism, homosexuality, abortion, random murder, political corruption, and all the other joys of our time.Caleb, with the help of Eleanor, an editor he forces on Ben, pushes Ben ruthlessly to complete the series. moreCaleb even seems to dangle Eleanor's sixteen year-old son, David, in front of Ben's eyes as additional temptation, but one that Ben knows he must resist.When the series finally comes out on the market, it appears to be a failure until it is banned in West Virginia, and then in Mississippi and Utah. In the resultant publicity (soon followed by high sales), Ben finds himself first barricaded in his house by outraged right wing picketers, and then driven to a bonfire of his books. His life has become a chaos from which he must find an escape. less
