Troy has loud sex. Troy has loud sex twenty-four seven. Troy shares a wall with Thea and Charlie. Troy is ruining their lives—or is he saving them? A darkly comedic tale of New York neighbors, the ways our lives become interwoven with the lives of strangers, and the unexpected consequences of unasked-for intimacy.

Charlie and Gerald reunite their failed 2000s boy band for a competition offering prize money that could remedy both of their financial woes. What could go wrong?
