Faccilongo will take his millions wee...wee...wee all the way home to the piggy bank

American writers from Dreiser through Hemingway to Pynchon have long sought after the Great American novel. No one expected that the masterpiece that has for so long eluded the literary geniuses of the USA would be produced by the pen of Vito Faccilongo, a Brooklyn podiatrist.

The brief but profound work is based on the children's nursery rhyme, This Little Piggy. The opening chapter has been acclaimed as "an incisive critique of market economics" by NY Times literary critic, Cray Onscrawl. The New Yorker fiction reviewer, Finn Gerpaintz, found Chapter two to be: "A brilliant satire of the nesting generation of the 90's." Vegan Whirled critic saw in Chapter Three: "A moving portrayal of the anorexia of our time in the refusal of even livestock to be turned into a cannibal!"

Critics are unanimous about the climactic final chapter of this American masterpiece. In the words of premier literary analyst, Aybee Seedee: "The scatology of the homecoming and the tell tale trail of urine reminds us of the work of no one other than I.P. Dailey at his best in The Yellow River!"

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
