“Put Kavalier & Clay to one side, and Crumb, and Calvin & Hobbes. . . Henderson has contributed his own, outsized, rambunctious myth to the annals of comics, and of our literature.” - Globe and Mail
“With this novel, Lee Henderson gives us the 1980s, and so much more: creative spark, ambition, sex, and the darker pulls of history, time, and death. Henderson is inventive, playful, and deeply serious, and this ambitious novel includes all his gifts.” - Meg Wolitzer, author of The Interestings
“Lee Henderson fashions a boisterous, romantically dirty, and cannibalistic universe in which one of the great American art forms (the newspaper comic strip) and one of the most controversial American presidents (Ronald Reagan) are swirled together to create a brand new Peter Pan story about capitalism, art, selling out, and the darkness of growing up. It’s a wild, surprising, and heartbreaking adventure.” - Sheila Heti, author of How Should a Person Be?
