"In Jason Porter's hilarious and poignant debut novel, Why Are You So Sad?, readers are introduced to Ray, a senior pictographer at LokiLoki. Ray feels disengaged from life, and comes to believe that the people around him are products of a grieving planet. He composes a survey, asking his motley assortment of colleagues questions like: "Are you who you want to be?", "If you were a day of the week, would you be Monday or Wednesday?", and "Do you believe in life after God?" Reminiscent of both Gary Shteyngart and George Saunders, Porter's debut is an acutely perceptive and sharply funny meditation on what makes people tick"--
