"The only thing Dave Dickerson does better than poignant, funny greeting cards is this poignant and funny first book. A wordsmith, a charmer, and a witty self- effacer, Dickerson proves himself a gifted narrator of hilarious, compassionate prose." - Sara Barron, author of "People Are Unappealing" ""House of Cards" is hilarious and amazing. What a marvelous relief it is to discover, at long last, that there's life on other planets, specifically Planet Dickerson in the galaxy HooBoy! It's amazingly wonderfully weird." - Bob Shacochis, National Book Award-winning author of "Easy in the Islands" and "The Immaculate Invasion"
