The AskBook - 2010
"Milo Burke--husband, father, development officer at a third-tier university--has just joined the burgeoning class of the newly unemployed. Grasping after odd jobs to support his wife and child, Milo is relieved to get another chance from his former boss. All he has to do is reel in a potential donor--a major "ask"--who, mysteriously, has requested Milo's involvement. Probing several themes--or, perhaps, anxieties--including work, war, sex, class, child rearing, romantic comedies, Benjamin Franklin, cooking shows on death row, and the eroticization of chicken wire, The Ask is a tour de force from a writer who has already shown that the deepest fictions are often the funniest"--Cover, p. 2.
