Description

Meet Edward, a twenty-six year old self-proclaimed genius, and peddler of the modern scientific history of nothing. Edward leaves graduate school with his theories in tow, and lands an entry-level job at an innovative new company. Although he's not sure exactly what the company does, Edward believes that with his keen mind and original ideas he will revolutionize everything from cubicle culture to the global marketplace. Comically unaware of his own irrelevance, Edward spends long hours thinking too much, contributing too little, and falling asleep at his desk with alarming frequency until a raucous confrontation alters his life forever. Told in Edward's endearing, delusional voice, The Wages of Genius is a hilarious and touching portrait of a hapless young man with poor judgment, bad luck, and the best of intentions. Gregory Mone's debut novel about the pursuit of Einsteinian greatness is seriously funny and curiously heartwarming at the same time.show more
