About the Author

Edgar Cantero is a writer and cartoonist from Barcelona working in Catalan, Spanish, and English. He is the New York Times bestselling author of Meddling Kids and The Supernatural Enhancements.

Reviews

"This Body is a book that lives in the intersection between reality and pop-culture, but it does so with a kind of honesty because that's where its characters live. Likely where Cantero lives, too. It packs more references, asides, call-outs and side-eyes into a single paragraph than anything you've ever read...once you settle into the rat-a-tat prattle of the dialog and the tinkling of shell casings hitting the floor, it's a ride, for sure."
--NPR.org

"In A.Z. Kimrean, Cantero has written the funniest private investigator this side of Peter Sellers. How can you not love the warring siblings, opposites in a single body, as they outwit everyone they meet? You will. You will love them."
--Josh Malerman, New York Times bestselling author of Bird Box and Unbury Carol

"Audacious, clever, and ridiculously entertaining at every page turn... Subverting familiar tropes of the detective genre is a fertile playground for Cantero and the result is something extraordinarily alluring."
--SYFYWIRE

"Cantero is exercising a lot of genre tropes in [Meddling Kids]-although not as psychedelically as he does in...the private-eye-skewering, gender-confounding This Body's Not Big Enough for Both of Us - and the exercise pays off in satisfying dividends. Especially because Joss Whedon, you know? Because Joss Whedon is, after all, only a single human being, and thus can't possibly write All The Things That Are Kind Of Like This. So hallelujah that Edgar Cantero - a Barcelona native whose first language is Spanish, but who spits pop-culture in English like the savviest geek in, say, Sheboygan posting on Tumblr - is writing some of them."
--The Austin Chronicle

"[A] winning spoof...Literary references (Bret Easton Ellis, John Grisham, and Ayn Rand in one sentence), clever quips ("an arrogance of college jocks"), and bad puns (a carpenter who loses his tools is a "saw loser") keep the pages turning. Few will be able to resist Cantero's broad, quirky humor."
