Description

Praise for Dylan Hicks:

"Hicks is a terrific writer who can craft a simile with the best of them."—Kirkus Reviews

"The joy in Hicks' debut arises less from plot than from the writing itself: nuanced, ingenious, perceptive, funny."—The Star Tribune

"Do yourself a favor and read this smart, tender book. The characters will haunt you with their longing, and inspire you with their sweet, caustic wit."—Sam Lipsyte

Archer is a sex toy heir. His best friend, John, is as earnest as Archer is feckless. John's girlfriend, Sara, writes Archer's semi-celebrated novels for him. Sara's roommate, Lucas, wishes he'd never lost his girlfriend to the man. Money, friendship, and resentment unspool in the conversations we have as we're coming of age and coming to grips.

Dylan Hicks is a songwriter, musician, and writer. His work has appeared in the Village Voice, the New York Times, the Star Tribune, City Pages, and Rain Taxi, and he has released three albums under his own name. A fourth, Sings Bolling Greene, was released as a companion album to his first novel Boarded Windows. He lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with his wife, Nina Hale, and his son, Jackson.
