From the Back Cover
Across the universe there spins a planet very similar to ours, except that its people possess superpowers. Do they use their gifts to solve world problems and establish a utopian society? No.
There, bored young graduate John watches the people of Artinia run after the latest mePhone, cheer on their favorite contestants on Artinian Artist, and pray to Bob for peace and happiness from the thirtieth story window of his meaningless day job. All he wants is to find the one thing that will give his life meaning - a goal heavily impeded by life in a world on a steady bent toward insanity.
