Publisher Description

The Financial Lives of the Poets is a comic and heartfelt novel from National Book Award nominee Jess Walter, author of Citizen Vince and The Zero, about how we get to the edge of ruin—and how we begin to make our way back.

Walter tells the story of Matt Prior, who’s losing his job, his wife, his house, and his mind—until, all of a sudden, he discovers a way that he might just possibly be able to save it all.... and have a pretty damn great time doing it.

Quite brilliant

Listen to him speak if you get the chance. Intelligent, funny man.

A bit disappointing

I read this after Beautiful Ruins and not as good so a letdown for sure but not a bad book either. JW is a talented writer and plan to read more of his books....EAF
