Praise for My Near-Death Adventures (99% True )
A knee-slapper of a debut featuring a narrator who is rather less than 99 percent reliable but 100 percent engaging. KirkusReviews
An] exuberant first novel. Publishers Weekly
Stan s story is full of his hilarious misunderstandings and overactive imagination. Interspersed throughout are pictures and news clippings embellished with wisecrack remarks, speech bubbles, and the occasional mustache. Booklist
