Dear Reader,

A Siberian mountain man must travel to Harvard to win back his homeland, and Africa to win back his heart. A wild, existential, comedic romp in the traditions of Kafka and Heller, THE UGLY is one of the strangest, quirkiest books you'll read this year.

Pulitzer finalist Laila Lalami wrote, "THE UGLY brims with intelligence and humor," Largehearted Boy Book Notes called it "a bold and hilarious satire," and author Pete Duval said, "THE UGLY is the funniest, smartest novel I've read in a long, long time."
