Joining the ranks of the literary elite isn't always about who you know... but who you kidnap.
Tragicomic relief for rejected writers.
Jona Gold hasn't given up completely. He still has Sylvia Plath to cheer him up, surprisingly healthy gums, and confidence that his one and only poetry chapbook, Notes on an Orange Burial, will soon be published. He's convinced that nothing can stop the latter -- not his wife leaving him, nor his boss firing him, nor a filing cabinet full of rejection letters, nor even an incident of minor terrorism that ends the lives of his would-be editors.
Will Jona finally receive the literary recognition he feels he so deserves? Will all his years of befriending famed dead writers and sleeping with Sylvia Plath's photo pay off? Or will all the bad breaks become too much for poor Jona to bear?
