"Jesse Reklaw's graphic memoir, told through conceits like cat histories and card games, is about his childhood and involves family, death, mental illness, sex and drug use ... The graphic novel is told in five parts: In 'Thirteen Cats' (featured in The Best American Comics), Reklaw discovers coping mechanisms that mimic his family pets; 'Toys I Love' relates the author's pre-pubescent brushes with deviant sexual activity, and the way innocence converges with real sexual trauma; 'The Fred Robinson Story' tells the story of Reklaw's period stalking perfect strangers; 'The Stacked Deck,' in which hereditary influences towards criminal behavior, drug use and depression are explored via card games the author played with his family; and 'Lessoned,' a family history of mental illness.

Short cartoons depict scenes from the author's childhood and adolescence. Despite his family's troubling dynamics, a deep affection for them comes through in the artwork.
