In Pip Caplan’s Physics, Lion is trying to explain why they’re so awkward in social settings to their friend, Lizard. Obsessed with how to properly converse, and what friendship means, Lion goes to extreme lengths to set those parameters. Lizard is interested in a far more casual definition of friendship.
Pip mixes big weighty ideas with a zany comic style to a glorious effect. Readers might feel overwhelmed at first glance, but revisiting Lizard and Lion will lead to great rewards!
