Memoirist Charles Homar finds the girl of his dreams only to lose her near their wedding date to her obsession in finding the great sea monster, the Kraken. Charles takes it pretty hard and embarks on an adventure to win Gillian back. Only he gets tossed in jail, takes up with a friend of a friend in pursuit of the Sasquatch, recovers from a nasty bump on the head during a UFO encounter, only to be befriended by steroid-pumping Lothario and then find himself back at home attending the funeral of his cantankerous and distant father. It’s a whirlwind of events and Giraldi keeps it coming with rapid-fire dialogue and snarky witticisms. This is “man literature” for those who like their humor dark and action fast, and who can also enjoy classic man references in a modern setting. This is Giraldi's debut novel and is for fan's of Kurt Vonnegut, among others.
