Jeremy Spitalnick is a witty Brooklyn writer with a rabbit named Digby that lives under his sink. Unfortunately he has never been able to sell one of his scripts because of nervous habits and tics that always pauperize his pitches. After adding another failed studio pitch to his attempts, Jeremy is dropped by his literary agent and returns home to find an eviction notice on his door. After a perplexing job hunt, Jeremy finally lands a gig selling vacuum cleaners door to door. Jeremy starts meeting people with equally odd complexities and even stranger home professions while working as a vacuum salesman on the streets of Brooklyn. Can they teach him how to sell vacuum cleaners? Can they teach him how to sell himself? This story contains Dada art, an intellegent courtesan and a man in a purple sloth costume.
