Happy Hour in America

Tim Lane continues his exploration of the Great American Mythological Drama that began with his first book, the critically acclaimed Abandoned Cars. This collection of stories is broadly linked together by the experience of wandering — both literally and figuratively. With compelling verisimilitude, the lives of his characters are depicted by way of rich mixtures of obscure myths and documented facts, dreams and reality, belief and disbelief, throughout a haunted landscape populated by the ghosts of a complex and rich fictional tapestry. You'll witness a young man's dubious quest to discover the myth of the protagonist from an obscure vintage comic strip; encounter sociopathic hobos in boxcars and misled young men whose facial pores sprout worms and who throw up babies into gas station toilets; visit modern "Hoovervilles"; and experience the life and death of an undocumented immigrant bookstore doorman, former boxer, and expert hustler.

"[Tim Lane] makes illustrations in that Brylcreem-soaked, hard-boiled, noir style with heavy hatching circa R. Crumb." – Juxtapoz

"Lane's beautifully crafted pen-and-ink drawing combines a master artist's eye for detail with a predilection for the grotesque to produce a superb blending of unforgettable images and poignant meditation on life's tragic undercurrents." – Booklist

"...[Tim Lane is] a major new voice on the American literary landscape, with or without the illustrations." – Print
