Richard Lesterabout this book: Store manager Larry Prescott was just looking to get laid. With a frigid wife at home, he turned to one of his employees for affection. What he couldn't have known, was that he was about to unleash "The MegaSaver Massacre."
The Check Out is a satirical novel about a group of grocery store employees who are desperately searching for a way out of their horrible lives. When a $10,000 giveaway is announced, they each decide to make a grab for the cash.
The Check Out is inspired by Film Noir and rooted in Exploitation cinema. An ensemble piece, the novel weaves a fast paced tale from the point of view of each of its characters.
According to reviewer Dave Gioia: "Lester is unquestionably a talented writer and overall the quality of the writing is good..."
A. Gyurisin, film reviewer and head of Film Club, says the book "will grip you from the very beginning and not let go until the final, violent, conclusion."
