A game of graffiti tag starts on an overpass when Blip Korterly paints a simple phrase – “Uh-oh.” Anonymously, an interlocutor responds: “When?” “Just a couple of days,” Blip writes back. But what happens in just a couple of days? A lot. Blip is placed under arrest. Blip’s friend, molecular biologist Dr. Flake Fountain, is recruited into a secret research project that conducts human experiments. A virus is found to render victims incapable of communication. What could happen if this were to be let loose on the population? Just a Couple of Days features absurd, larger-than-life characters who speak in satirical, playful prose in this underground cult classic.
