Nathan Wavelsky moves into the suburbs with his wife and two cats. Life is sweet. He’s a successful slacker. He doesn’t want to rock the boat.
But the boat rocks anyway. He gives a copy of Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle to a teenage girl next door. Her parents are righteously appalled. His wife’s hormones start to tango and now she wants a baby. Worse, his best friend wants him to climb Mount Everest. Nathan likes to hike, but climbing in the Himalayas? He could die, for God’s sake. He just wants to be left alone. But no chance.
Things begin to happen.
