“No good human won’t love this dragon named Gork.”—Dave Eggers

Gork, the Teenage Dragon is jam-packed with outrageous storytelling and soulful humor in the glorious American tradition of Kurt Vonnegut and Mark Twain. Who knew a dragon’s coming-of-age story could be filled with so much humanity? When I finished reading this book, I wiped a tear from my eye, stood up, got drunk, fell down, stood up again and gave the book a standing ovation. Gabe Hudson may well be the funniest writer working today, and the most likely to break your heart.”—Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story

“In the long and august tradition of literary masterpieces about sentient adolescent dragons from outer space, this is no doubt the greatest of the genre. Gork, the Teenage Dragon combines so many things I count on in fiction I love—great expansive humor, a big-hearted optimism about all that’s possible in the world and in fiction, a very clear moral purpose and a sense of social responsibility—plus a willingness to experiment with the form of writing, to push the art of writing further, and with passion. Gabe Hudson has crafted a very sensitive and very funny book from the most serious of subjects: interplanetary acceptance for giant lizards.”—Dave Eggers, author of Heroes of the Frontier and The Circle

“An epic love story that is wondrous, enchanting, hilarious, and heartrending. This dragon Gork is a direct descendant of Huck Finn and Holden Caulfield, and his voice is a marvel of comic timing and pathos. Gabe Hudson’s satiric gifts and mind-bending imagination place him in the ranks of Kurt Vonnegut and Mark Twain. Gork, the Teenage Dragon is sure to become an instant classic, destined to be loved by all sorts of readers through the ages.”—Akhil Sharma, author of Family Life
