A marvelous book. — Irvine Welsh, author of TrainspottingMeno masterfully, and meaningfully, conflates the fantastic with the everyday. . . . Tender, funny, spooky, and gripping. — Donna Seaman (Booklist)A darkly funny, lyrical, and shrewdly observant chronicle of a family on the verge of a nervous breakdown. — Tom Perrotta, author of The Abstinence TeacherMeno is thinking hard about why the world is the way it is and about where hope for change might reasonably lie. — Jonathan Dee (New York Times Book Review)
