All USA orders have a shipment tracking number.In a singular and captivating voice, Wayne marks his literary debut with the chronicle of one young Middle Eastern man's attempt to live the American Dream in New York city without sacrificing his ideals. "Sometimes you do not truly observe something until you study it in reverse," writes Karim Issar upon arrival to New York City from Qatar in 1999. Fluent in numbers, logic, and business jargon yet often baffled by human connection, the young financial wizard soon creates a computer program named Kapitoil that predicts oil futures and reaps record profits for his company. At first an introspective loner adrift in New York's social scenes, he anchors himself to his legendary boss Derek Schrub and Rebecca, a sensitive, disillusioned colleague who may understand him better than he does himself. Her influence, and his father's disapproval of Karim's Americanization, cause him to question the moral implications of Kapitoil, moving him toward a decision that will determine his future, his firm's, and to whom--and where--his loyalties lie."What a wonderful character Karim is--the hapless, hilarious, math-obsessed hero of Teddy Wayne's first novel. KAPITOIL is a delight. Who knew oil futures could be such fun?"--Joshua Henkin, author of SWIMMING ACROSS THE HUDSON and MATRIMONY"Brilliant.The beauty of Kapitoil, Wayne's debut novel, is that it tackles broad and serious themes with humor and an eye for detail. Karim's carefully articulated voice is a thing of beauty.Teddy Wayne = a major literary talent."--Houston Chronicle"[A] strong and heartfelt debut novel. It's a slick first novel that beautifully captures a time that, in retrospect, seems tragically na?ve."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)"Wayne has written one of the best novels of my generation. Why did 9/11 happen, and why do we continue to respond so blindly? Wayne answers these questions better than Mohsin Hamid or Joseph O'Neill, the best authors of this genre until now."--Boston Globe"Every once in a while, you encounter a character in a work of fiction who feels like such a real person, such a friend, that once you finish the book, you miss having him around. Karim Issar, the protagonist of Teddy Wayne's captivating debut novel Kapitoil, is such a character."--Salon.com"Flat out top-notch. Kapitoil makes you see America and the English language more clearly than ever before, and Karim Issar, the book's protagonist, is one of the most interesting characters we've had a chance to spend time with."--McSweeneys.net"[A] brilliant book. Karim Issar is one of the freshest, funniest heroes I've come across in a long time. In its honesty, humor, intelligence, and hard-won wisdom, "Kapitoil" is 'Karim-esque' to the nth degree, and that is a very good way to be."--Ben Fountain, bestselling author of "Brief Encounters with Che Guevara"Teddy Wayne's debut novel is an innovative and incisive meditation on the wages of corporate greed, the fundamental darkness of its vision lit by the author's great comic intelligence and wit."--Kathryn Davis, author of "The Thin Place", "Hell: A Novel", and "Versailles"A book ripe with beauty and potential.Karim Issar is a character readers will remember, and readers had better prepare themselves to remember the name of Teddy Wayne as well. It's one they'll be hearing again and again in the months following Kapitoil's release."--Bomb Magazine"This wonderfully assured debut novel, at once poignant, insightful, and funny.is a delight. Best of all, however, is si. Brand NEW unread book.
