Description: David Rakoff is a fish out of water. Whether he finds himself climbing a mountain in New Hampshire ("If only the mist would part to reveal a beautiful, beautiful parking lot, I will get through this".), learning how to skin roadkill at wilderness camp ("I wish I had a dead animal's anus and genitals to cut around and pull through its body cavity".), or simply sitting quietly in a department store holiday window...for a month ("I am the ghost of Christmas Subconscious, I am the anti-Santa, I am Christmas Freud".), Rakoff is simultaneously laugh-out-loud funny and take-your-breath-away poignant.

In this, his first collection of essays, Rakoff takes us places even we didn't know we wanted to go: expeditions as varied as the search for elves in Iceland, a foray into soap opera acting, or contemplating the gin-soaked olive at the bottom of a martini glass. "Fraud", for all its razor-sharp wit and snarky humor is also, ultimately, an object lesson in not taking life, or ourselves, too seriously.

Turning tragic flaws into divine comedy, "Fraud" is a remarkable debut.
