With a shiny new college degree and a desire to join the working world, Scott Ross secures employment at a Dominic's Pizza in Amherst, New York. His job will not only provide him with a steady paycheck for the next year and a half, but will also introduce him to a colorful assortment of characters. Characters whose behavior always makes perfect sense-to them. "Eighty Years out of a Billion" chronicles Scott's experiences, celebrating the hectic, often crazy playground on which young lives unfold. As he accompanies his new friends on their somewhat bizarre adventures, he grows increasingly aware of his own mortality, and of the way time begins to chip away at our options. Scott's witty, biting memoir offers keen observations on the ways we bide our time between birth and death . . . and the games we play to maintain the illusion that we control our own destinies.
