Hum and buzz there are for writer and cartoonist Edgar Cantero, whose exuberant, genre- and gender-defying books have included The Supernatural Enhancements and Meddling Kids. He is here tonight with his newest, This Body’s Not Big Enough for Both of Us (Doubleday). This is detective work with a difference.
“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.
“[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.” —Publishers Weekly.
