Steve Toltz's exceptional debut has drawn favorable comparisons to the work of New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Safran Foer. Stewing in an Australian prison, Jasper Dean reflects on his relationship with his dead father and recounts the many zany adventures they shared together. "... comic drive and Toltz's far-out imagination carry [this] epic story ..." -Publishers Weekly, starred review

Professional reviews

"Australian writer Steve Toltz's debut novel is a touching and hilarious story of a father and son recounting their incredible travels around the globe while trying to reconnect with each other. Voiced by Aussie Craig Baldwin, the character of Jasper assumes a reflective tone in looking back at his childhood adventures. His delivery is solid and believable, commanding Toltz's writing with a firm grip. Voicing the character of the father, Colin McPhillamy steals the show with a performance that engages listeners from the start. Everything about his narration seems underplayed and true. This is the perfect mix of comedy and drama, good times and bad, and neither narrator disappoints. L.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
