"I was burning alive. My mind was made up -- I was going to do something with my life, something, if not immortal, then at least memorable. All it had taken was someone to show me the way....
"But of course nothing changed. The next day was the same as the day before. The sky was gray. The war raged on. The groceries had to be bought. The bills had to be paid...."

[Mark SaFranko, Dirty Work]

Max Zajack's young adulthood is just as turbulent as the troubled childhood covered in Mark SaFranko's God Bless America. Desperate to escape his parents' dicatorial control, Max stumbles through a series of meaningless and exhausting jobs to achieve the only thing that truly drives him... his constant desire to become a writer.

Dirty Work is the fourth of Mark SaFranko's series of Max Zajack novels and follows the critically acclaimed Hating Olivia, Lounge Lizard and God Bless America. Dirty Work is the bridge between God Bless America and Hating Olivia. Max has left school and is searching for a steady job that gives him enough sanity to survive. . .and enough free time to write. Drawing comparisons to both Factotum and Death on the Installment Plan, the novel charts Max's struggles to make cash and become a great artist.

Mark SaFranko's latest work is introduced by the French critic Frederic Tue, who states: "If you think contemporary American literature comes down to Philip Roth, Thomas Pynchon, Russell Banks and John Irving, stop here a moment and open your eyes very wide. It would be a shame to forget Mark SaFranko -- remember the name and have it tattooed on your forehead with cigarette butts if necessary."
