Androids from Milk

Eugen Egner, Author, Mike Mitchell, Translator Dedalus Press $11.99 (210p) ISBN 978-1-903517-02-4
Having mysteriously remained 17 years old for two decades, the dopey Rueben Hecht gives new meaning to the term psychosocial moratorium and that's just the beginning of his problems in Eugen Egner's comic, insanity-riddled Androids from Milk, translated from the German by Mike Mitchell. Rueben's parents have apparently committed suicide, his doctor wants to put him in a kids' home and Rueben and his age-shifting sidekick, Edwina, must embark on an ""android-procurement"" mission that will uncover dark and surprising family secrets.
