About this title

Synopsis:

After a severe beating, young Steven Jones dies to his parents but continues to live as the playmate of an imaginary companion he has discovered inside himself called Kev. Kev helps Steven over some adolescent rough spots, then deserts him for a biker girl for whom Kev is also real.

From Library Journal:

After a severe beating by his father, eight-year-old Steven Jones retreats into a fantasy world and becomes father to Kevin, a tiny boy in his head. Steven invents a series of stories for Kevin to explain both his anger toward his abusive parents and his inability to leave them. For the next 12 years, Kevin remains his constant companion as he treads a borderland between sanity and self-destruction, surviving suicide attempts and institutionalization. A chance encounter with the equally abused Clara creates new ripples of confusion; she takes over Kevin until her suicide, leaving Steven to continue the grim struggle between his fantasy and the pain of reality. The bitter tone of this first novel will strike some readers as compelling, others as merely self-indulgent. For comprehensive collections.
