Here is a devastating, hilarious satire of coffee-swilling, celebrity-obsessed Southern California pop culture by one of the freshest new voices in fiction. Morgan Beale has a celebutante, masochist wife and a home being renovated. He begins adapting the latest bestseller, The Chihuahua in the Blue Prada Bag, from a local hotel room. Dodging the paparazzi one morning on his way to Starbucks, he discovers the surreal otherworld of Starbucks Nation, a film set littered with characters from Beale’s life and the novel he’s adapting, including a talking Chihuahua and an elite commando unit of ethnic cookie-making elves. Mercilessly lampooning our fascination with reality television, celebrity blunders, B movies, and mindless infotainment, Starbucks Nation brilliantly showcases the absurdities of modern society.
