Description



About the Book



"It's 1927 and National Prohibition is in full effect. On the record, the nation is dry, but the glory days are at hand for an unassuming cafâe on a quaint St Louis side street. Beneath its tile floors lies a notorious subterranean saloon--the Lackadaisy Speakeasy, where the spirits are still high and available on tap. Or at least they were until calamity rocked the establishment's foundations. Now, some jazz band riffraff and a beleaguered veteran are all that remain to pick up the pieces of the past...along with some decent bootleg booze. If the Lackadaisy is to survive this and the advances of its ferocious rivals, a little bit of creative chaos may be in order."--Book jacket flap.



Book Synopsis



It's 1927 and Prohibition is in full effect. On the record, the nation is dry, but the glory days are at hand for an unassuming café on a quaint St. Louis side street. Beneath its tile floors is a subterranean saloon -- the Lackadaisy Speakeasy, where the spirits are still high and available on tap.

Or at least they were until calamity rocked the establishment's foundations.

Now, some jazz band riffraff and a beleaguered veteran are all that remain to pick up the pieces of the past . . . along with some decent bootleg booze. If the Lackadaisy is to survive this and the advances of its ferocious rivals, a little bit of creative chaos might be in order.



Review Quotes




"Wily escapism into a historically detailed and profoundly weird world, with dynamic art and nonstop mayhem purring along." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"Butler's fine-lined, sepia-toned artwork beautifully captures the visual style of the Jazz Age." -- BOOKLIST

"The premise of Lackadaisy is grounded in mystery and shenanigans, a combination as tried and true as canned wet food and chin scritches." -- THE MARY SUE

"The lively series is full of drama, comedy, violence, and if you squint, a history lesson or two. Did we mention that all of the characters are cats?" -- SYFY WIRE

About the Author



Tracy Butler was born in 1980 in Springfield, Massachusetts. She studied biology for a year at Our Lady of the Elms College in Massachusetts, before returning to her art. She created a website with some of her work, which led to a job offer from Simutronics, a Missouri game development company. Butler performed illustration and graphic design work before moving into 3D character design and animation. After living in St. Louis for some time, she purchased a 100-year-old house and began researching its history, as well as that of the local neighborhood, and ultimately the history of St. Louis itself. Combined with her interest in jazz music and the characters she had designed in school, this led to her starting Lackadaisy in July 2006.

Cruz - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
The art contained in the book is some of the best I’ve seen and the story itself is extremely compelling making you want more. I haven’t read the full story yet but the art on the cover and the entire presentation so far just paints a picture of perfection. Can’t wait for volume 2 and the full animated series to come out
