“Henderson takes us on a strange, comical, and mysterious ride through the center of make-believe… A grand farce.”

–Ralph Lombreglia, Make Me Work

“This believable and fantastic literary thriller–about myth, lost reputations, celebrityhood, TV craziness, and pop psychology (not to speak of Papa, Ezra, and Gertrude)–will hold you until the last gripping and very human page.”
