Youthful hacker-turned-slacker Rollo Hemphill can’t help failing ever upward in three previously published comic novels, combined in this ebook edition. In My Inflatable Friend, he devises a screwball scheme with a life-sized rubber doll to make his girlfriend jealous and stumbles into a gig on shock-jock radio. In Rubber Babes, when he thinks he’s landed a cushy job heading up a Hollywood charity, he ends up running from the Feds. Then in Farnsworth’s Revenge, he’s on the lam in Europe and gets recruited for a secret government operation that will either solve the energy crisis or destroy the worldwide banking system. The painful consequences of Rollo’s comic misadventures show us all too vividly the perils of pretending to be someone you’re not — and the hazards of stroking every male’s most vulnerable part — his swelling ego.

When a family of color moves into an all-white neighborhood in 1973, some residents brand the newcomers pariahs. The neighborhood convulses and spasms of violence erupt. Rather than run or fight, Makayla, the new family's matriarch, her son Elvin Jr., and her daughter-in-law Shirley are determined to put their best food forward —inviting neighbors to parties that feature the family’s favorite dishes. The neighbors include the Kelly, Derico and Welles families, all of whose reactions traverse emotional arcs from contempt to confusion to grudging acceptance to love. Family members seek, find, and lose love; some are in trouble with the law; some die; all change and grow over time. Each character has his or her own unique reaction and response, as a neighborhood struggles to adapt, change and grow.
