Tom has a short time to convince his superhero girlfriend, the perfectionist, that he's visible, or he loses her forever.
’This book is like a kiss in the afternoon sun. Somebody should write Mr. Kaufman a letter and thank him for his tender heart and the way he puts things down so gently. I expect this story will replace boxes of chocolates and flowers in courting rituals to come.’ Sheila Heti, author of How Should a Person Be?
’Here, the words "modern" and "mythology" hang together in such a wonderfully close and inventive embrace. This is a story that will steal up quietly and seduce with its originality and wit.’ Terry Griggs, author of Cat's Eye Corner
’Andrew Kaufman's novel is funny like the quiet cracking of a heart. Here's a world so absurdly perfect in its realization that any tangent down a literary rabbit hole pulls up yet another oddball, mind-striking truth. The Fantastic Four was never so phenomenal.’ Lee Henderson, author of The Man Game
