Abstract:

The brilliant, funny and unforgettable novel starring that feminine feline - of George Herriman's famous comic strip - who sees the bricks hurled at her bean by Ignatz Mouse as tokens of love. The action begins in 1945, when Ignatz and Krazy witness an awesome explosion engineered by "New Clear fizzyits" near Alamogordo, changing Krazy's world - and ours - forever. In his attempt to get his top tomato out of her mega-brick depression, Ignatz invents psychoanalysis to therapize her, flies in a Hollywood producer to lure her with stardom, recruits the whole cast to kidnap and terrorize her. And through Ignatz's machinations, highbrow stuff like sex and death enter their flat cartoon world, until Krazy, Offissa Pup and Ignatz can actually imagine themselves as human beings.
