In his weekly comic strip, Carl Mix immortalized his family as a loving group of wisecracking imps. When he dies, his estate is divided between four of his children -- in reality, a dysfunctional, semi-estranged brood. The fifth, Tim, a struggling artist, is given three months to draw the strip. If he succeeds (giving up his own work) he will have inherited a gold mine; if he fails, he will get nothing.
This brilliant portrait of a family, each member tyrannized by their cartoon alter egos, secures the renown of an immensely gifted young writer.
