Through little fault of his own, but enough that the fates canat be blamed entirely, Simon becomes involved in political intrigue beyond his comprehension. Simonas tentative trajectory somehow catapults him through mall parking lots, bars, hotels, bedrooms, warehouses, jail, caves, and pizza joints. Without intending to do so he matches wits and stratagems with the revolutionary Carranza brothers, their confirmedly heterodox guitarist Ari Cohen, raving evangelists and politicos, corporate masters of ethical perversion, exotic dancers, terrorists, and policemen. Through it all Simon wishes for nothing more than a girlfriend, and for people to quit complaining about his apartment. Snap Once is at once a metaphorical political work, a satirical look at the American newspaper business, a love story, a commentary on numerous drinking strategies, and a damn good time for those adventurous enough to indulge.
