Alternative Views:


High up in the Transamerica Building in San Francisco, Jacob Kin sits all day staring at colored lines flickering across a video display monitor. He is an accountant in the world of the not-so-distant future, a little man in a job of numbing boredom, dreaming all day of chess problems.

The road that takes him from the "ultimate turkey job" to the center of a surreal revolution in which neither side knows the identity of the other is the subject of this comic novel Along the way he meets a succession of obsessive, sharply-drawn characters—Menaloa Kopernicht and her Maoist cohorts, the batty wise-man Bettelhausen, Lucille of the burglar-alarm voice, Georgio the Romanian meatball, Mrs. Dodopopolous, and the haunting figure of Yung Kuo, whose spirit stalks Chinatown . . . and ultimately all of California.

William Kent Smith, the author, is a filmmaker and writer in Los Angeles.
