In James Kochalka’s shocking book, not a single elf or kitty-cat rears its cute, goofy head. A gorgeously realistic side is revealed to Kochalka’s art in this profoundly introspective, but deeply funny tale of a distractible young man who tries to escape despair by setting off into the cosmos. Will he find sanctuary before the Sun blows up — or is the knowledge that the Sun will blow up just the sanctuary he needs? Casual philosophy-adventure that delights the eye.
