Molly Marbles, an overweight 24th-century Earth girl, wrote “The Joy of Salami,” an essay that won her a spot at a university on the moon. Later, after marriage and twin girls, Molly lives on Mars. After starting a new job as a security guard at the Culinary Institute, she investigates a mystery: People are ending up poisoned after eating her favorite snack food, Chocolate Moons. Kingon invents a colorful, often outrageous cast: Molly’s first love, Drew, who has an affair with CC, otherwise known as Colorful Copies; Cortland Summers, Molly’s husband and an aspiring rock legend; and Rocket, a sleazy fellow looking to make lots of money by any means necessary; and other memorable characters. The author builds a weird, hilarious universe full of witty language and unique detail.
