The Financial Lives of the Poets

The Financial Lives of the Poets - Jess Walter Jess Walter is a fantastic writer and very funny. Can't believe he only just now crossed my radar. [full review]

"There are these lakes in Northern Idaho that are supposed to be bottomless; the Navy used to do submarine training there. They'd think they had found the bottom and then a submarine would find a deeper hole. Of course, the lakes weren't bottomless. In fact, it turns out nothing is bottomless - except the trouble I get into." p.250
