About this title

Synopsis:

Edwin Mullhouse, a novelist at 10, is mysteriously dead at 11. As a memorial, Edwin's bestfriend, Jeffrey Cartwright, decides that the life of this great American writer must be told. He follows Edwin's development from his preverbal first noises through his love for comic books to the fulfillment of his literary genius in the remarkable novel, Cartoons.

From Library Journal:

This 1972 first novel was written in the form of a biography of a fictitious person by a fictitious author. The plot follows the life of Mullhouse, an "eccentric young show-off who fancied himself something of a literary wonder"
