A novel by

This novel tells of a young man's attraction and ultimate addiction to skunk musk, and the social difficulties he encounters as a result. He longs to find an isolated utopia where he can experience his addiction in peace, but he is thwarted by all, including a young woman who understands his skunk fetish because she has a fish fetish.

"The skunk-obsessed narrator of Justin Courter's excellent, off-kilter love story, leads his lucky reader through a flare-lit labyrinth of unusual, and unusually rewarding, instances. This is fine, fierce writing: an auspicious debut."

--Laird Hunt

"Thoreau meets Timothy Leary in this outrageous and cautionary tale of what happens when two olfactory obsessions collide. An audacious debut."

--Brian Evenson
