9780061802836: The Repossession Mambo

Thanks to the technological miracle of artiforgs, now you can live virtually forever. Nearly indestructible artificial organs, these wonders of metal and plastic are far more reliable and efficient than the cancer-prone lungs and fallible kidneys you were born with—and the Credit Union will be delighted to work out an equitable payment plan. But, of course, if you fall delinquent, one of their dedicated professionals will be dispatched to track you down and take their product back.

This is the story of the making—and unmaking—of the best Bio-Repo Man in the extraction business, who finds his soul when he loses his heart . . . and then he has to run.

About the Author:

Eric Garcia is the author of several novels, including Matchstick Men, which was made into a feature film directed by Ridley Scott and starring Nicolas Cage, and the Anonymous Rex series. A native of Miami, Florida, he now lives in Southern California with his wife, two daughters, and a dog.

From Booklist:

Garcia, it seems, is one of those writers who can do pretty much whatever he puts his mind to. A novel about a con man with OCD? Sure, no problem: Matchstick Men. A spoof of chick lit? Piece of cake: Cassandra French's Finishing School for Boys. A series about a dinosaur private eye? Child's play: Anonymous Rex and its sequels. A near-future story about guys who repossess artificial organs for a living? No trouble there, either. The Repossession Mambo, originally published in 2009 as a mass-market paperback, now has been reissued as Repo Men, to tie-in with the movie version, also written by Garcia. The novel is gritty and imaginative (and, consider yourself warned, occasionally the imagery is rather, um, visceral). Garcia tells a simple story: a repo man, unable to keep up the payments on his own artificial organ, goes on the run from his former colleagues. But the story is told with such gusto, such a keen sense of time and place—Garcia really makes you feel like you're part of this near-future world—that you're captivated by the sheer power of the narrative. Another excellent, offbeat, and unique novel from this very talented writer. --David Pitt
