"His name is Kurt Clausen. A former English major (aka Extraneous Man), he's worked as a salad girl, a porn salesman, and - perhaps most reluctantly - a journalist. Finally, things seem to be looking up. He's found an editor who lets him write the way he wants. He's got a girlfriend who nurses his wounds (born the emotional king and the kind inflicted by flying canned hams), and who laughs at just about everything he says and does. And he's still not drinking. But after taking on everyone from the fundamentalists to the vegetarians, ace reporter Kurt Clausen makes the mistake of taking on his girlfriend. And this time, she's not laughing."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
