Romulus Ledbetter wasn't always homeless. He once was a devoted husband, father, and Juilliard-trained musician with a bright future. He now lives in a cave in New York City, waging a strenuous one-man fight against an evil and imaginary power broker responsible for society's ills. When Romulus finds a corpse outside his cave one wintry night, he is launched on an obsessive quest for answers that leads him back into the harsh reality of "the civilized world". Suspenseful, deeply moving, and mordantly funny, "The Caveman's Valentine" is a remarkable novel from one of the freshest voices in literature.
