All Tom's friends really are superheroes. Tom even married a superhero, the Perfectionist. But at their wedding the Perfectionist is hypnotized by her ex, Hypno, to believe that Tom is invisible. Nothing he does can make her see him. Six months later, the Perfectionist is sure that Tom has abandoned her, so she's moving to Vancouver. She'll use her superpowers to leave all the heartbreak behind. With no idea that Tom's beside her, she boards the plane. Tom has, until they touch down, to convince her he's there, or he loses her forever...This book is a wonderful, heartbreakingly funny tribute to love, sweet love.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is an adorable book: neat, sweet, petite. Your loved one will love you even more for buying it for them. Toby Litt 'Somebody should write Mr Kaufman and thank him for his tender heart ... I expect this story will replace boxes of chocolates and flowers in courting rituals to come.' Sheila Heti A work of adorable genius. Buy it, borrow it, steal it but just make sure you read it. I am willing to bet it will be your surprise read of the year. I read it on the train home the day I received it and spent the whole evening smiling. (****)Scott Pack 'meandmybigmouth.typepad.com 'An addictive, brisk, wonderfully inventive and funny piece of work.' Dogmatika '... may technically be called a love story, but if it is, it is one that is blissfully cliche free. More please.' Pulp.net 'Simply brilliant. A real gem of a book ... this ode to love was built to last.' Ham & High 'A deliciously barbed commentary on our ongoing epidemic of physical and emotional multi-tasking and all its neurotic spinoffs.' The Globe and Mail

“I feel I may have missed the point of this book”

Reading about a plane journey in real time is weird. I started it as we took off and finished it as it landed. I just wanted something short and simple to entertain me for my flight and I'm unsure if this did... More

“Must read!”

Kaufman appears to be endlessly imaginative. A brilliant book with a refreshingly original concept. The story is funny in parts, serious in others, and has a few morals sneaked in. Definitely read this if you get the... More

“A charming, lovely little book”

I typically don't go for short stories, but I couldn't resist this one--I finished it in an hour, then had to reread for the sheer enjoyment of it.

Quirky in all the right ways, with characters who are... More
