EGGMAN vividly portrays the amazing diversity a messenger deals with daily and how the messenger can go places that no other citizen can.
 —Lucas Brunelle LINE OF SIGHT

J Milligan sees things that other people don't. EGGMAN is a noirish whirlwind of hilarity and surprise; it's a very fun ride.
—Henry Alford, Writer for the New York Times, Vanity Fair and the New Yorker. Author of How to Live (Twelve, 2009) named Best Book of the Year by Publishers Weekly, and Would It Kill You to Stop Doing That? (Twelve, 2012)

Set in the bicycle delivery world of NYC post-9/11, EGGMAN is itself like a bike messenger: fleet, fierce, always racing towards a sure destination even when you can’t predict its unexpected swerves, slips or turns - a tough machine powered by flesh and blood, zooming through the wreckage of a still-tender city.  In the end, J Milligan does what every good bike messenger must: he really, truly delivers.
—Ed Valentine, Writer: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, The Fairly OddParents and Transformers: Rescue Bots, among many others. 

Upon reading EGGMAN, I found myself convinced that J Milligan has earned his spot among that small pack of writers successful in their efforts to convey the twisted state of affairs that is our young century.  The strangeness that Milligan lays before us is not, however, an arbitrary splattering of paint--there is a remarkable control behind this mad, pre-apocalyptic narrative and a gift for language that punches exactly when it needs to.  If at times I was reminded of Sam Lipsyte's bleak but exacting humor, at others I felt the romance that gets me in Murakami's best work.  But, without question, Milligan's voice is all his own . . . and it deserves the widest possible audience, among which I will sit any time.

Once again, J Milligan delivers his unique and original voice first seen in JACK FISH, achieving a dark and comic, descriptively rich, post-modern view of New York City, this time from the adrenaline fueled seat of a bike messenger.  EGGMAN is a true punk noir journey, David Bowie would be proud.
