Product description


It's the modern equivalent of the Raymond Chandler yarns that fill up the more exciting portion of your bookshelf -- a string of police chases and back-alley fist fights with a surprisingly introspective thread running in the background.

The book signals the arrival of a major new voice on the American literary landscape, with or without illustrations.

Dirty, greasy, and impossible to put down, Lane's hardcover debut was the perfectly-timed summing-up of The American Dream in all its power and tail-finned delusion.--Alan David Doane

Lane's gorgeous black-and-white artwork -- naturalistic with occasional leaps into the surreal -- consistently lends tension as well as a quiet beauty to these various tales of struggle.--Danny Graydon

The spirit of the Beats imbues the debut collection by Tim Lane... The stories are united by their sense of longing and melancholy. ... His pen and ink style, reminiscent of Charles Burns, is extremely detailed and noirishly evocative.--Mike Sebastian
