"Alex-Li Tandem sells autographs - a small blip in a huge worldwide network of desire. It is his business to hunt for names on paper, collect them, sell them, occasionally fake them, and all to give the people what they want: a little piece of Fame. But what does Alex want? Only the return of his father, the reinstatement of some kind of all-powerful benevolent God-type-figure, the end of religion, something for his headache, three different girls, infinite grace and the rare autograph of forties movie actress Kitty Alexander. With fries."--BOOK JACKET.
