Pike's Folly


Formats & editions


Nathaniel Pike, a headstrong billionaire, is purchasing a piece of federal land in New Hampshire's White Mountains and turning it into a huge, inaccessible parking lot. Orbiting Pike and his aspirations is a cast of perfectly flawed eccentrics: Marlene, who is shy and vulnerable but also a budding exhibitionist; Stuart, Pike's assistant, who is Marlene's husband and a failed writer; and Heath, who films Marlene's public nudity and turns her into an Internet star.
In this grand tale of the folly of the modern world, Mike Heppner skewers the extravagance of wealth, and the class that grows up around that wealth, even as he casts a humane look at the people involved.

Praise for Pike's Folly

““Brims with fun. . . . The kind of Waugh-like breezy black humor that cloaks a biting satire.””
