Reviews

"This book, which interleaves striking reproductions of Hogancamp's art with his tragic story and the richly imagined narrative of his fictional town, is fascinating on many levels. While his history is compelling (the beating was prompted by his revelation of cross-dressing), his work is also art in its own right: painstakingly created (the models are rigorously aged for authenticity) and carefully composed pictures that, at a glance, might be mistaken for actual WWII scenes.. Truly remarkable." - Booklist starred review
"No side of humanity is ignored, no detail too small." -Omnivoracious
"With Nazi figurines, miniature G.I. heroes, and Barbie dolls, Hogancamp and his alter ego-a toy soldier named "Hogie"-have managed to transform the trauma of a violent attack into an ingeniously rendered alternate reality brimming with drama, romance, and adventure." -Wired.com
"Obsessive, unsettling, his work caught the art world's eye, was the subject of a 2010 documentary, and is now this fascinating, moving book." -Chronogram
