From the Author
This work is a genuine example of surrealist fiction. Many of the images are from dreams and the narrative was pieced together over a period of years after careful editing and reconfiguration of plot and imagery. If you enjoy entertainments such as Eraserhead, My Dinner with Andre, or any of the more surreal, and intellectually challenging graphic novels, such as Paul Auster's New York Trilogy, I am told you will most likely enjoy this book. Happy journey.

The format of the book resembles Maus II, both in size and weight and in the colors on the cover, but that's where the similarities end. The mark of a good graphic novel is that it works on many different levels, which this one does. I enjoyed it immensely from a humor standpoint, and actually got most of the references to psychology and modern art. I enjoyed it enough to reread it shortly after the first time and would recommend it highly.
