another fucked-up love story for fellow defects
Jim Marceau thinks life is absurd. His jaded existence is defined by three things: alcohol, casual sex, and the search for meaning. When he wakes up in a strange woman's apartment with no memory of the previous night, she charms him into being her date for a wedding. Her name is Marigold, and she quickly turns his bleak perceptions upside down. As the day unfolds, they fall in love. Sort of. But Jim, who's half-Jewish, runs afoul of Marigold's wealthy, racist family and the man they want her to marry. Things go south in a hurry, leading to some truly horrific situations. As Jim plans to avenge himself and protect the woman he cares about, he must ask how far he's willing to go to set things right. Dark, profane, sexual, violent, and insightful, The Infinite Nothingness is a story about a man coming to terms with the best and worst parts of himself and that inevitable fate which waits for us all: death.
