Quicksand by Steve Toltz

Aldo has failed at everything he’s ever tried: countless outlandish entrepreneurial schemes, his marriage, even suicide attempts. When he takes his most downward turn yet, his old friend Liam sets out to write Aldo’s biography, reviving his abandoned dream of authorship. Through flashbacks, police interviews, and court testimony, Liam tries to make sense of the bizarre misfortunes and delusions of his pathetic yet magnetic frenemy. Depressing in the funniest way and with loopy momentum, Quicksand tugs a reader into this complex, hilarious friendship.  —Julia
