A young graphic designer fresh out of college in the summer of 1961, Happy has just landed his first job at a wacky advertising firm filled with eccentric creative artists. Everything is going great until Happy is assigned to design a newspaper ad recruiting participants for an experiment in the Yale Psychology Department. Happy can't resist responding to the ad himself. Little does he know that the experience will devastate him, forcing a reexamination of his past, his soul, and the nature of human cruelty - chiefly his own.

Written in sharp, witty prose and peppered with absorbing ruminations on graphic design, this stand-alone sequel to Chip Kidd's previous novel, The Cheese Monkeys, again shows that Kidd's writing is every bit as original, stunning, and memorable as his celebrated book jackets.

    " Liked Cheese Monkeys better - but as soon as Happy got involved with Milgrim's famous experiments- I felt the lightness of Kidd's writing couldn't bear these potentially big ideas... had a good time with the book though! "

    " I just attended a reading for this newest novel by Chip Kidd. I've always admired his work as a designer of book jackets, I was pleasently surprised to find that I truly enjoyed his writing as well. It was a refreshing book, very easy to read, comedic, and an interesting subject matter, completely beyond my skeptic's expectation. "

    " fantastic, a wonderful follow up to cheese monkeys, but also stands up on its own accord. any book that talks about stanley milgram's obedience experiments and darwin's tubercles (which i have) wins. the ending is a bit weak, but better than his first book's ending. and i adore his vocabulary. "
