“T Cooper is a prodigious talent, who manages not just to ‘Make it New’ but also to ‘Make it Great.’ ”
—Darin Strauss, author of Chang and Eng and More Than It Hurts You
"T Cooper does the kind of thing that drives other writers mad: He takes the bones of stories told many times, in many ways, and shapes them into something singular and breathtaking. . . . Cooper's nearly flawless prose is the meat of this work: It's as if the author challenged himself to test his talents with a scenario that in less able hands would almost necessarily lapse into cliché and cheap satire. Instead, Cooper makes it original, humane, and deeply funny."
"An unlikely premise—a polar bear makes it big in Los Angeles and then crashes—but somehow Cooper makes it work. . . . Outlandish and frequently hilarious."
