“Terse and funny and

“Terse and funny and dry as a dead Iowa corn snake baking in the sun. Palecek delivers a quick, deadpan slap to reactionary, mindless, post-911 America. The sting is delightful. — Mark Morford, San Francisco Chronicle [Iowa Terror] “If you want to know the truth about America, you’ve got to read your Palecek novels ... ... because he’s got certain information, man.” “Mike Palecek reminds me of Socrates the gadfly who asked unwelcome questions, Diogenes with his lantern looking in vain for an honest man, Chekhov with the hammer challenging the complacent family to share their meal, Kerouac the ever on the move, somehwat hysterical searcher, and he reminds me of many Americans who as children were so blasted with propaganda that they’re devoting the rest of their lives to challenging the lies and all who tell them. In this land where babies are brought by storks and buildings collapse due to unpatriotic bricks, we need the gadfly because no leader, preacher, guru or saint will wake us up, though the Doomsday Clock is ticking close to twelve.” — DAVID RAY, American Poet I’ve read JFK assassination fiction by Don Delillo and Norman Mailer, and can tell you that this new novel [Johnny Moon] not only is Mike’s best book yet, it’s much better than Delillo’s and Mailer’s efforts to do justice to the most important event in U.S. history.” — Dr. KEVIN BARRETT Mike Palecek writes with passion, wit, and alway with a strong social conscience. — HOWARD ZINN [Above, cover by Allison M. Healy; at right, cover by Keith McHenry] 62/Penn Magazine/November 2017
