An edgy, hilarious novel about one man's attempt to alert his friends to the catastrophe sure to arrive on the eve of Y2K. It's 1998. Randall, a twenty-five-year-old children's singer and puppeteer, has discovered the clock is ticking toward a worldwide technological cataclysm. But he may be able to save his loved ones-if he can convince them to prepare for the looming threat. That's why he's quit his job, moved into his car, and set out to sound the alarm. The End As I Know It follows Randall on his poignant and funny coast-to-coast Cassandra tour. From the Trade Paperback edition.Finally I pass the culprit, an Acura with a blown tire in the left lane. ... No tinier, though, than a few lines of computer code, a few stray electrons. Beyond the bottleneck, we start to move at a healthy clip. I turn on the radio and find a news station.
