Praise for Simon Crump:
"Deliciously obscene and blackly comic. . . . Quentin Tarantino on acid in Graceland. Extraordinary."--The Sunday Times
"Like an episode of South Park, where just as you get into the story something goes splat, Crump's contorted imagination is alarmingly enjoyable."--Guardian
"There's a lot more to the book than you might think; an undercurrent of despair and depression that leads to an unexpected and thoroughly moving conclusion."The Independent
"Simon Crump is a vicious and endearing fellow."Todd McEwen
"Crump has a uniquely honest and unflinching vision and he has the talent to tear off the veneer and revel in the insalubrious reality beneath without being gratuitous or heartless. If you have a dark side, Simon Crump will let you see it--but beware, you might not like what you find."--Time Out
"Crump is in total control of his material. His writing is plain, the humor a faded black, the dusting of pathos unobtrusive."Zembla
Neverland is Simon Crump's most daring collection yet--surreal, outrageous, and laugh-out-loud funny. Four years in the making (and delivered just hours before Michael Jackson's death), this is a superb piece of writing that transposes the King of Pop into a world of $2,000,000 unicorns bought on eBay, giant whelks, rampaging bodyguards, violence, wonder, mystery, and golf.
Outrageous and hilarious, Neverland is nevertheless more than just satire: it is a profound--and profoundly entertaining--fictional exploration of celebrity.
