“Camel’s Bastard Son is smart, sharp, weird, sexy and funny, which is to say it’s terrific…Kurt Vonnegut for our fraught moment.”
---Laird Hunt, author of The Impossibly and In the House in the Dark of the Wood
“Corey Mesler has written a dystopian novel for the post-Trump era…the novel makes a poignant, often funny plea for changing direction.”
