Lucy is a four-year-old girl with a very active imagination. Unfortunately, her imaginary friend Mr. Marmalade does not have much time for her. What he does have is a cocaine addiction and a penchant for pornography... not to mention the fact that he beats up his personal assistant. Larry, Lucy's only real friend, is the youngest suicide attempt in the history of New Jersey. Mr. Marmalade is a savage dark comedy about what it takes to grow up in these difficult times.
"...exhilarating...alternately hilarious and heartbreaking...through the alchemy of Haidle's scintillating style." --The New Yorker
