Tracing various meanings of the acronym “fubar,” the story chronicles the adventures of an array of characters from diverse cultural, social and ethnic backgrounds, all of whom strive to leave their mark—at times in legitimate and at times in iniquitous ways. Among them are Fergus Ulysses Barr, the timid scion of Britain’s selfish aristocracy, Dwayne Junior Zobinsky, the offspring of an unscrupulous New York tycoon and an iconoclastic abstract artist, Tosh, a half-caste renegade and troubadour, Tosh’s loyal—and heroic—pooch, Mutt, and their respective girlfriends and assorted parents, as well as big-world politicians and their associates.
As the adventures unfold, one message emerges: whereas in the private sphere opportunities for harmony and reconciliation arise, mainly at the behest of the younger generations, in the public/political arena, strife reigns unabated.
