"Boucher makes the world come alive by making language come alive." —George Saunders, Lincoln in the Bardo


A WILDLY INVENTIVE, HEARTBREAKING, AND HILARIOUS NEW NOVEL ABOUT A MAN WHOSE LIFE IS FALLING APART . . . IN VERY BIZARRE WAYS . . .
After his wife announces on Twitter that she's leaving him, Christopher's life in small-town Coolidge just goes from one catastrophe to another. He contracts a strange illness that divides him in half, undergoes a failure competition, and is driven to join a cult called The Unloveables. How did it all get this bad? How can he regain his bearings, and find meaning and love once again?

Heartfelt and riotously imaginative, Big Giant Floating Head is the daring, dazzling account of a man’s struggle with love, loss and redemption.
