The Man Who Wouldn't Stand Up

(2012)
A novel by

 
 
From the acclaimed author of The Biology of Luck comes a hilarious, Kafkaesque satire

Arnold Brinkman is a shy and retiring botanist; he loves his plants more than his country. But when his refusal to stand for the national anthem at a baseball game causes a major media incident, he is thrown into a world of pushy patriots, preachers, and press. And it's not going to get any easier when he refuses to apologize. A hilarious bullet into the heart of modern America, this novel mixes the literary sensibilities of Jonathan Franzen with the raucous satire of D.B.C. Pierre, and was the recipient of the Dundee International Book Prize.

    

"A darkly comic satire, full of insight into American culture." - Stephen Fry
