This novel that Publishers Weekly called a “spellbinding debut” follows Luke and his imaginary friend, Daniel, whom he meets playing in the park. Daniel, who narrates the story, becomes more powerful and antagonistic over time. The novel explores Luke’s struggle with his inner demons and his relationship with his mentally unstable mother. DeLeeuw is an assistant editor at the literary magazine Tin House in New York.
