Edgar Cantero is a writer and cartoonist from Barcelona working in Catalan, Spanish, and English. He is the New York Times bestselling author of Meddling Kids and The Supernatural Enhancements.
"This Body is a book that lives in the intersection between
reality and pop-culture, but it does so with a kind of honesty
because that's where its characters live. Likely where Cantero
lives, too. It packs more references, asides, call-outs and
side-eyes into a single paragraph than anything you've ever
read...once you settle into the rat-a-tat prattle of the dialog and
the tinkling of shell casings hitting the floor, it's a ride, for
"In A.Z. Kimrean, Cantero has written the funniest private
investigator this side of Peter Sellers. How can you not love the
warring siblings, opposites in a single body, as they outwit
everyone they meet? You will. You will love them."
--Josh Malerman, New York Times bestselling author of Bird Box and Unbury Carol "Audacious, clever, and ridiculously entertaining at every page turn... Subverting familiar tropes of the detective genre is a fertile playground for Cantero and the result is something extraordinarily alluring."
--SYFYWIRE "Cantero is exercising a lot of genre tropes in [Meddling Kids]-although not as psychedelically as he does in...the private-eye-skewering, gender-confounding This Body's Not Big Enough for Both of Us - and the exercise pays off in satisfying dividends. Especially because Joss Whedon, you know? Because Joss Whedon is, after all, only a single human being, and thus can't possibly write All The Things That Are Kind Of Like This. So hallelujah that Edgar Cantero - a Barcelona native whose first language is Spanish, but who spits pop-culture in English like the savviest geek in, say, Sheboygan posting on Tumblr - is writing some of them."
--The Austin Chronicle "[A] winning spoof...Literary references (Bret Easton Ellis, John Grisham, and Ayn Rand in one sentence), clever quips ("an arrogance of college jocks"), and bad puns (a carpenter who loses his tools is a "saw loser") keep the pages turning. Few will be able to resist Cantero's broad, quirky humor."
