About The Financial Lives of the Poets

• Paperback: 320 pages
Publisher: Harper Perennial; Reprint edition (September 7, 2010)

The Financial Lives of the Poets is a comic and heartfelt novel from National Book Award nominee Jess Walter, author of Citizen Vince and The Zero, about how we get to the edge of ruin—and how we begin to make our way back. Walter tells the story of Matt Prior, who’s losing his job, his wife, his house, and his mind—until, all of a sudden, he discovers a way that he might just possibly be able to save it all . . . and have a pretty damn great time doing it.

“The ultimate something-for-everyone-don’t-skip-must-read” (Sara Nelson, The Daily Beast)

“Walter is one of my favorite young American writers. . . . [Financial Lives] made me laugh more than any other book published this year.”- Nick Hornby, Parade

“Darkly funny, surprisingly tender . . . witheringly dead-on.”- Los Angeles Times

“Jess Walter is a brilliant writer, one of the freshest new voices in American literature.”- Dallas Morning News
