Try And Try Again: 3 Tales Of Spectacular Failure

Superman crashlands in Wenceslas Square, Prague, Czech Republic.

Don't let the theme fool you. These three books are anything but failures. They are, in fact, full of sharply rendered and utterly original characters who fail spectacularly in their attempts to do right (or what they think is right). They are men on a mission, variously heroic, harebrained, heartfelt, even cruel, but their good intentions are undeniable, if not always admirable.
