"Seidlinger's riveting book has 'unpacked' the classic Holden Caulfield character we know and love and given us a newly complicated misfit to root for.Here we see the boundaries of good and evil, love and hatred, self and other dissipate as the increasingly lovable demon takes possession of us." --Garrard Conley, author of Boy Erased: A Memoir

"Seidlinger continues his quest to become a literary chameleon, diving into new genres and remixing them into something wholly his own. His is a kingdom without borders." --Joshua Mohr, author of All This Life

"High school is a time of endless exorcisms, and Michael J. Seidlinger captures the demon-expelling days of senior year in Falter Kingdom with tenderness and honesty. As in any high school, there is someone determined to hold onto his demon as long as he can, and Seidlinger wisely places that demon-embracer at the center of this defiant, innovative novel."
--Idra Novey, author of Ways to Disappear
