The result is a funny, disquieting, and thought-provoking exploration of the human obsession with making <b>plans</b>.<br /> <br /> About the Author<br /> <br /> Rob Kovitz''s previous bookworks include <i>Pig City Model Farm, Room Behavior, Games Oligopolists Play, Death Wish Starring Charles Bronson Architect, Capital of the World, </i>and<i> Ice Fishing in Gimli</i>, which was awarded the Art Gallery of York University''s Artists'' Book of the Moment Award in 2010.
