An impressive debut from a major new voice in American fiction.

Days after his ex-girlfriend's suicide, Wayne flies to San Francisco for her funeral. When he learns that she aborted their child, Wayne embarks upon a search for meaning that takes him to unusual places and through some of the most influential events of the past ten years.

His journey takes him up and down the East Coast on foot, then over to Cuba where he meets the fishing guide who inspired Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea, across the American West in an RV, ending up at the legendary Burning Man festival and an encounter with his soulmate, who turns out to be a six foot three giant of a woman in a purple cowboy hat.

Brad Listi's novel is a dazzling exploration of love and death that just so happens to include some drugs, prostitutes, naked cycling, Mantovani and the ingredients for a Molotov cocktail. It is one of the most inventive and rewarding debuts in years.

Attention. Deficit. Disorder. is the first great road novel of the 21st century.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In his graceful debut novel, Brad Listi evokes a portrait of grief that is weird and true. At once an adventure and a deep character study, Attention. Deficit. Disorder. is a book you'll want to share."
Owen King, author of We're All In This Together

"An ironic, often humorous take on the anomie of youth"
People magazine
