Me & Mr. Cigar

AUTHOR: Gibby Haynes

From the wild and wonderful mind of Gibby Haynes-world famous Butthole Surfers front man/lyricist and self-proclaimed eternal Texan adolescent-comes the surreal tale of seventeen-year-old Oscar Lester and his trusted dog, Mr. Cigar.

Oscar and his dog have made a pretty good life for themselves, despite the fact that Oscar's family has all but vanished-his father is dead; his mother has a new boyfriend. His older sister, Rachel, fled five years ago . . . right after Mr. Cigar bit off her hand.

Despite the freak accident, Oscar knows his dog is no menace. Mr. Cigar is a loyal protector- a supernatural creature that can exact revenge, communicate telepathically, and manipulate car doors and windows with ease. So, when Rachel-now twenty-two and an artist living in New York-calls out of the blue and claims she's being held hostage, Oscar sees an opportunity to make things right between them.

He races north, intent on both saving Rachel and fleeing the mysterious evil forces targeting his dog. And it's only by embarking on this dual quest that Oscar starts to untangle his own life and understand the bizarre reality of Mr. Cigar.

*Features original artwork by Gibby Haynes as full color endpapers and illustrations throughout the book.
