The Man Who Wouldn't Stand Up Paperback


From the acclaimed author of "The Biology of Luck"" comes a hilarious, Kafkaesque satireArnold Brinkman is a shy and retiring botanist; he loves his plants more than his country.

But when his refusal to stand for the national anthem at a baseball game causes a major media incident, he is thrown into a world of pushy patriots, preachers, and press. And it's not going to get any easier when he refuses to apologize.
