Welcome to Men in Black for tin-foil hats. In this satirical romp, urban legend survivors draft a granola mom into their high-tech underground war against every conspiracy you can think of—and many you haven’t. Ever wonder who’s behind traffic jams or sharp plastic packaging? How about the video cameras in automatic flush sensors?
Featuring a sold-out grunge-star ex-husband, corrupt golfers, armed French waiters, and taser-packing car salesmen, The Urban Legion puts conspiracies and urban legends in a funny, plausibly absurd new light. Food courts and airport restrooms will never be the same.
Conspiracy theories abound in Agans's highly satirical and hilarious take on everything sketchy and skeptical about contemporary living. Agans's caffeinated narrative moves speedily across all manner of conspiracy theories yet retains its slapdash and exceedingly silly core. Readers of fast-paced, melodramatic satire are sure to find much to smirk and chuckle at with this yarn about paranoia and a frenzy of cutthroat, Boston-based foodies.
