the inactivist

Insomniac Press, 2003

Set in a future where buying advertising space on children's teeth is not uncommon, the inactivist is the story of Kitchen, a guy who's given up trying. Nothing matters: work, romance, the world. His co-workers have even formed an Inactivist group to stop all change. Only when Kitchen meets Gage does he rethink the idea that "trying is for suckers."

A social satire of corporate North America, the inactivist is reminiscent of the novels of Chuck Palhaniuk and Douglas Coupland. Eaton's slick pacing and consummate storytelling skills are sure to please.
