Vada Prickett is a 29-year-old "Host Associate" at a carwash in South Carolina. Darla, the woman he loves, is about to marry his friend, rival, and lifelong neighbor, Wyatt Yancey. Vada has "spent his life waiting for the thing to get a proper start." But it will never get that start, for Vada, as this wildly original novel opens, is being crushed to death by Wyatt's latest animal trophy, a stuffed grizzly bear Vada has been helping him to smuggle- against Darla's wishes- into Wyatt's house. It turns out that the cliché is true- at the moment of death, your life does flash before your eyes. Trophy, the account of a man's fleeting final instant on earth, joins Vada as he attempts to make that flash last as long as possible. As he lies dying, too soon and too absurdly, Vada tries to unravel the mysteries of life and to prolong, in every way that his circumstances allow, the time he has remaining.--From book jacket.… (more)
