Trapped in a remote Alaskan forest, pinned under his own SUV, gnawed upon by nature’s finest predators, Marv Pushkin — Corporate Warrior, Positive Thinker, Esquire subscriber — waits impatiently for an ambulance and explains in detail the many reasons why this unfolding tragedy is everyone’s fault but his own.
“A hairy and hilarious voyage into ultra-consumer Marv Pushkin’s worst nightmare, HELP! A Bear is Eating Me! is Mykle Hansen’s satirical swan song for the secret reptile desires in every American heart. Switching from sardonic blitz to surprising sympathy to gruesome surrealism, Hansen’s novel is face-melting fun from first to last.”
– Jeremy Robert Johnson, author of Angel Dust Apocalypse and Extinction Journals
“Brilliant, poignant, and utterly hilarious. Nobody can satirize American culture as well as Mykle Hansen.”
– Carlton Mellick III, author of SatanBurger
“Posits a bold, sprawling alternate reality future-world in which a guy is being eaten by a bear.”
– SF Weekly
“Lays bare the unspoken assumptions and class dynamics of the modern human-bear condition.”
– Guns & Ammo
“American Psycho with a bear!”
– Shane Sin, Gorerotica author
