About this item

Eric the fly-head-wearing teenager is barreling down the road at 100 mph in his convertible, high as a kite... But it isn't sufficient for him to escape the increasingly violent and depraved goings-on back in town, where he is unwed father-to-be, kept man, drug dealer, and small-town boy on the run from everything and everyone. Once again the disturbing story is told through a series of individual chapters narrated by different characters (including his fellow drug dealer Denis, the sisters Marie and Lisa, the bowling-obsessed retro thug Ringo, and of course the nihilistic, increasingly desperate Eric himself ), often with cleverly overlapping time frames and switches in perspective — with dead characters from earlier chapters showing up periodically to offer their sardonic commentary on the goings-on — delineated in Mezzo’s clinically detailed, hallucinatory style. As event piles upon event and things brutally spin further out of control, the reader will begin to realize that this cannot all possibly end well... or can it? Three years after the release of King of the Flies’ critically acclaimed, eye-opening first episode Hallorave, the concluding installment Happy Daze answers that question — good and hard.
