This debut novel follows When Thinfinger--skateboarder, kitchen worker extraordinaire, and ne'er-do-well with a slightly tarnished heart of gold--and the trail of Post-It notes he relies on to make sense of his world. When a robbery occurs at his beloved pizza parlor, things begin to heat up for Ovenman.

Skateboarder, restaurant worker, and punk rocker wannabe, the antihero of Jeff Parkers uproariously funny debut novel adds a new twist to the classic coming-of-age story. Our hero, When Thinfinger, is a neer-do-well with a slightly tarnished heart of gold, and relies on Post-it notes to help him make sense of the chaos and momentum of his life: a girlfriend who dreams he murders her, a long lost Biodad who writes letters filled with lies, a televised war that is over before it has even begun, and a robbery he cant remember committing.
