An ebook classic from ANTIBOOKCLUB

Jacob Lipschitz has the perfect plan to save his failing department store: burn it to the ground. He hires his friend to do the job while he vacations with his wife, Ruth, in Florida. But Jacob’s best-laid plan goes up in smoke after he suffers a stroke on the way to the airport. Ruth is in her own world, absolutely convinced they arrived in Florida, while his son Harry decides, of his own accord, it’s time to step up and help the family business. Meanwhile, Jacob’s youngest son, Ezra, is the worst high school basketball coach in New Jersey. Ezra needs a win and his wife wants a child. One day he happens upon a young man shooting hoops on the playground. Suddenly, Ezra knows just what to do . . .

Fire Sale is the third novel by Robert Klane, and the final word in his tasteless ouevre. The antitastemakers at ANTIBOOKCLUB are proud to publish this long out-of-print 1975 black comedy in its first-ever ebook edition, along with Klane’s other cult collectible novels The Horse Is Dead and Where’s Poppa?.

Robert Klane—whose first novel, The Horse is Dead, Jack Benny proclaimed to be, "Undoubtedly the funniest book I have ever read."—lives with his Emmy award, his two dogs, and his wife in Woodland Hills, California, where he spends his free time being mostly ambulatory while awaiting what will hopefully be a swift and painless death.
