Josh Swensen becomes a reluctant celebrity when his anti-commercialist alter ego "Larry" gains teenage followers world wide. Josh fakes "Larry's" own death and hides in Boulder, Colorado under the alias of Mark. When his past catches up with him, he must once again face the public as "Larry". He has difficulty maintaining his austerity, problems with his girlfriend and ex-girlfriend, a threat from his nemesis betagold, self identity problems and the rather unusual problem of running for U.S. President.
