Praise for Simon Crump:

"Deliciously obscene and blackly comic. . . . Quentin Tarantino on acid in Graceland. Extraordinary."—The Sunday Times

"Like an episode of South Park, where just as you get into the story something goes splat, Crump's contorted imagination is alarmingly enjoyable."Guardian


"There's a lot more to the book than you might think; an undercurrent of despair and depression that leads to an unexpected and thoroughly moving conclusion."The Independent

"Simon Crump is a vicious and endearing fellow."Todd McEwen

"Crump has a uniquely honest and unflinching vision and he has the talent to tear off the veneer and revel in the insalubrious reality beneath without being gratuitous or heartless. If you have a dark side, Simon Crump will let you see itbut beware, you might not like what you find."Time Out

"Wickedly funny."Uncut

"Crump is in total control of his material. His writing is plain, the humor a faded black, the dusting of pathos unobtrusive."Zembla

Neverland is Simon Crump’s most daring collection yetsurreal, outrageous, and laugh-out-loud funny. Four years in the making (and delivered just hours before Michael Jackson’s death), this is a superb piece of writing that transposes the King of Pop into a world of $2,000,000 unicorns bought on eBay, giant whelks, rampaging bodyguards, violence, wonder, mystery, and golf.

Outrageous and hilarious, Neverland is nevertheless more than just satire: it is a profoundand profoundly entertainingfictional exploration of celebrity.
