Summary

The laughs, the drama, and the many takes on class and race relations areunrelenting in this comic novel about a streetwise character named Watt wholives in Harlem with his grandmother, a renowned voodoo priestess.Watt?s job is to administer ?slap therapy??technically calibrated, therapeutic bodyslaps?at Dr. Otto Von Geber?s treatment center for those who suffer from ChronicMillionaire Burnout (CMB). Millionaires (and billionaires) afflicted with CMBsearch in vain for a purpose, feel that life is meaningless, and have come to realizethat they can?t trust a single soul. It?s a little-known disease, however, because if itbecame common knowledge that wealth and power are such difficult burdens tobear, it could undermine the global economy.When one of Watt?s richest patients dies during a therapy session, Watt becomes aninstant fugitive, hiding in New York City haunts from Harlem to the posh SuttonPlace. All the while, he is pursued by Jehoover, the ruthless and merciless OldTestament police captain who has sworn to kill Watt.This gutsy New York novel moves between the worlds of the rich and the poor,highlighting the comedy and tragedy that binds the two, and indeed all of us,together.
