Jasper Beamon, an Omega man, receives an ominous e-mail from his past soul mate that she is publishing a tell-all book about their relationship. Plummeted into a neurotic tailspin, Jasper is forced to examine his life. But will he?
Jasper’s journey begins in the hot and humid tobacco fields of North Carolina to the bloody sands of Vietnam to the sometimes violent post anti-apartheid South Africa.
Throughout Jasper’s journey his constant companions, Jimmy Mack, his fateful appendage, and Lulu, his loyal Chinese Water dog urge, cajole and plead with him to change his life before it is too late. But can he?
Upon returning to the United States, Jasper’s troubles mount. He is hospitalized for PTSD and loses ten million dollars in the economy downturn but expects President Obama to relieve him from greed, restlessness and irresponsibility. How dare he?
