All Tom's friends really are superheroes. There's the Ear, the Spooner, the Impossible Man. Tom even married a superhero, the Perfectionist. But at their wedding, the Perfectionist was hypnotized (by ex-boyfriend Hypno, of course) to believe that Tom is invisible. Nothing he does can make her see him. Six months later, she's sure that Tom has abandoned her. So she's moving to Vancouver. She'll use her superpower to make Vancouver perfect and leave all the heartbreak in Toronto. With noidea Tom's beside her, she boards an airplane. Tom has until the wheels touch the ground in Vancouver to convince her he's visible, or he loses her forever. The tenth anniversary edition of Andrew Kaufman's perennial favourite, All My Friends Are Superheroes , includes a new catalogue of superheroes and gorgeous illustrations by Tom Percival.
"All My Friends Are Superheroes by Andrew Kaufman: It's a beautiful short story that I picked up off the shelf and stood there until I was about to miss my train. I bought it, ran for my train, and finished it before I got home. It's a wonderful world where lots of people have a strange and unique superpower. Our main character has no such power but on his wedding to a woman who can make anything perfect her ex uses his power of suggestion to make her new husband invisible to her. The book is his desperate attempt to break this curse before she gives up on her husband and makes a new life without him 'perfect' by forgetting him completely. It's strange and it's wonderful and I love it." – BuzzFeed
