Advance Praise for Mastodon Farm

“I’d rank this book up there with Fabulous Nobodies and I Pass Like Night, both books that I’ll never forget the experience of reading.”
-Ken Sparling, author of Dad Says He Saw You At The Mall

“It is like watching TV for 12 hours on a Saturday / a blur of desert-palm trees-James Franco-helicopter noise / the brain of the TV watcher encapsulated.”
-Noah Cicero, author of Best Behavior

“In his impressive debut novel, Mike Kleine fingers the asterisk of pop culture by turns absurd, matted, and outré-familiar. Mastodon Farm lays bare the smooth fiction of mediatized reality.”
-D. Harlan Wilson, author of Hitler: The Terminal Biography

“You feel delirious reading Mastodon Farm. You freak out a little. You change genders. You listen to Tangerine Dream. You drive a Ferrari. You have a good time. You read it again. You read it again.”
-Nick Antosca, author of Fires

“Mastodon Farm is about you. You are wealthy and only associate with famous people. Mike Kleine has written your life. His language is stripped down, but your story is dense… [Think] Samuel Beckett, Tao Lin, Bret Easton Ellis.”
-Bradley Sands, author of Rico Slade Will Fucking Kill You
