Fiction. Who is Marvin K. Mooney? He has disappeared. Is he alive? Are his philosophical ramblings, puzzling poetry & heartbreaking confessions real? Let Marvin (or is it Christopher?) lead you on a hallucinatory and heartfelt search for identity.

"THE COMPLETE WORKS OF MARVIN K. MOONEY seems to me unprecedented via form, making new ways of both telling a story and relaying information, but also doing so in a way that is, as David Foster Wallace so expressly begged for: fun."—Blake Butler in Bookslut

"The sheer greatness of Higgs' novel calls the capacity of the word greatness into question."—Dennis Cooper
