Small town America tears itself apart in this realist novel from one of the greats of science fiction
Leo Runcible – of Runcible Realty – is too excitable and too pushy. His wife drinks too much. He may be a man of principle, but Liberal Jewish Leo is an outsider in the lilywhite Carquinez, Marin County.
When he gets into a pointless argument with a customer over his neighbour Walt Dombrosio’s house guests, the resulting ramifications follow a bizarre logic of cause and effect to lead in entirely unexpected directions …
And can Leo really have found the skull of a Neanderthal man in middle America?
THE MAN WHOSE TEETH WERE ALL EXACTLY ALIKE is a dazzling novel by a writer famous for his power to surprise and delight.
