"Joe Ponepinto's Mr. Neutron offers a hilarious and biting romp across the American political landscape through the eyes of beleaguered campaign operative Gray Davenport. Gray is a man accustomed to living a "slow-lane life" as an aide to a perennial office seeker, while conjuring up an imaginary alter ego, Monterey Jack, a tough hombre who bubbles with testosterone. Yet Gray's existence picks up unexpected speed when his own wife signs on to manage the mayoral campaign of an eight-foot-tall opponent, Reason Wilder—a nemesis who seems hardly human. Soon several mysterious old men have hired Gray to investigate this monstrous neophyte...and what ensues is a mad escapade that perfectly captures the ongoing derangement of our current electoral order. Mr. Neutron is satire at its best: sharp, clever and unsettling. Ponepinto has penned the defining political comedy for our own tragicomic democracy."

—Jacob M. Appel, author of Millard Salter's Last Day

 

“Mr. Neutron is pure fun, satire at its best, skewering American government, politics, and society with delicious humor and insight. This is a book you'll press on your friends, a book full of quotable gems and characters you won’t soon forget.”

—Kathy Anderson, author of Bull and Other Stories

 

“Just when you thought politics couldn't get any stranger, Joe Ponepinto gives us this--a madcap, comedic tale of politics as usual--or unusual, rather. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll read, you'll vote. And then you'll read again."

--B.J. Hollars, author of Flock Together
