First of all, Michael Malice is a real person. Heâ€TMs 5â€TM6†and weighs 130 pounds. Although on the cusp of thirty, he could easily pass for a scrawny teenager. One day Michael, a guy with a patchwork employment record and dreams as big as his ego, meets Harvey and begins to relay all these wild stories about his life. Simple as that. Harvey thinks the guy is bright but a bit of a riddleâ€"though not the kind wrapped in an enigma. Itâ€TMs strange.
