Alongside Padgett Powell, Joy Williams, Etgar Keret, Carrie Brownstein, Daniel Handler, and Kelly Link NPR named Fake Fruit Factory one of 2015’s best books.
I am sure those guys are insanely proud to be in my company.
They had this to say about the book: “If it all sounds like Twin Peaks meets Scooby-Doo, well, it is — but in the best possible way.”
NPR gave Fake Fruit Factory a stellar review, calling it:
“It all sounds like Twin Peaks meets Scooby-Doo, and it is — but in the best possible way.”

Poets & Writers magazine asked me what I must have in order to be creative:
“A mess. I need an absolute, total, tsunami-like mess on my desk to be productive. I cannot be creative when things are neat and tidy. Oddly enough, my work does not fit any sort of neat and tidy structure.”
The literary Journal JMWW recently posted a stellar review of Fake Fruit Factory:
“for those who want to gaze deeply, not into the voice, but into a beating heart and the thousand voices inside of it, Fake Fruit Factory offers delight.”
It’s in the trade magazines, which makes it official now. HarperCollins will be putting out my first kid’s book in 2017.
