"PLEASANTOPIA" is a spoof of America's most affluent town per capita: PLEASANTON, CALIFORNIA; you'll laugh out loud so much that you may spill your latte; you may even choke; you may just want to find me, Doug, downtown basking in the warm tension of all this affluence . and dump it over my head. PLEASANTON-hotbed of affluent lifestyle trends and intrigues, balanced between the legendary wealth volcano Silicon Valley, and that fountain of the bizarre, San Francisco. "PLEASANTOPIA" captures it all. Well, it goes a little too far: The head teen of the town and her father the mayor clash over who should run the family business . and the town. Her beautiful best friend (and personal accountant) is kidnapped right off Primary Street triggering a riot and a shootout. Is she being held by the international terrorist who's toying with detonating his latest "project" within PLEASANTOPIA? Will the powerful family of the town's famous ex-football coach win the shootout? And does PLEASANTOPIA's mysterious sidewalk crack grinder truly have special powers from his mystical years back in Vietnam? Grab a triple grande caramel caffe macchiato downtown, then relax for an enjoyable read beneath Pleasanton's signature icon: the spreading Arc du Affluence. See inside for shocking author bio ."
