Dwight Wilmerding, twenty-eight, is having a midlife crisis. And there's an even bigger problem: his chronic inability to make up his mind. Encouraged to try a drug meant to banish indecision, he is all at once fired from his low-grade tech-support job in Manhattan and invited to a rendezvous in exotic Ecuador with the girl of his long-ago prep-school dreams. Unable to decide if the magic pills are working, he finds his would-be romantic escape becoming a journey into unbidden responsibility and - deep in the jungles of the Amazon - the foreign country of a changed outlook. 'Indecision manages to make the whole flailing, postadolescent, prelife crisis feel fresh and funny again . . . The funniest and smartest coming-of-age novel in years' Jay McInerney, New York Times Book Review 'He's got this voice that just grabs your attention and won't let go . . . Old Dwight's book really knocked me out' Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
