Summary
An eccentric writer living as a recluse on his own island with his talking dog Hector comes up with a scheme to take on his irritating new neighbor, a self-aggrandizing multimillionaire named Lapham who is building a grotesquely enormous new home next door, in a satirical debut novel of life in the Hamptons. 40,000 first printing.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Harry March is something of a wreck and more than half nuts. Up until now, he has lived peacefully on an island in the Hamptons with his talking dog, Hector, a born-again Evangelical and unapologetic capitalist. But March’s life starts to completely unravel when Lapham—an ostentatious multimillionaire who made his fortune on asparagus tongs—begins construction of a gargantuan mansion just across the way. To Harry, Lapham’s monstrosity-to-be represents the fetid and corrupt excess that has ruined modern civilization. Which means, quite simply, that this is war.
