Inhaltsangabe: The Most Amazing Thing, is the extravagant narrative of Desmond Ruck, a midlife down-and-outer who stumbles into a big-crime shootout, escapes in a van filled with billions, and journeys across America in a series of bizarre encounters and close escapes. Safe at last, Ruck embarks on a number of outsized philanthropic ventures. But his largesse and compassion get him into really big trouble.
Vom Verlag: The Most Amazing Thing is a book in the great tradition. Like the work of Swift, Fielding and Twain, it gouges at the underside of politics, business and religion. But the author's sword is double-edged, striking not only at the dishonesties of power but also at the chronic American naivete and moral laziness that allow these evils to remain in place. Few authors deal with these problems as aggressively as Grudin, and few present them with so much healing laughter.
The Most Amazing Thing was named a finalist in the 18th Benjamin Franklin Awards in recognition of excellence in Independent Publishing. As one of three finalist in the Popular Fiction category, The Most Amazing Thing was highlighted for excellence in editorial and design merit by a panel of book industry experts including buyers at wholesale and retail levels, librarians, book critics, design experts and independent publishing consultants.
