A capricious comedy of errors, Small Apartments resonates with tremulous energy and quirky characters. Franklin Franklin is a fully realized and sympathetic protagonist in the vein of Ignatius Reilly (A Confederacy of Dunces), a simple man who yearns for ?a land of pastoral serenity? devoid of the irritations of contemporary urban life. An offbeat tale, Small Apartments is accented along the way by murder, strange fingernail collections, and the occasional blast from a treasured alphorn. Small Apartments is now a majorly quirky motion picture starring Matt Lucas and Peter Stormare, and co-stars Dolph Lundgren, Johnny Knoxville, James Caan, Billy Crystal, Juno Temple, Saffron Burrows and Amanda Plummer.

Chris Millis is a prize-winning, bestselling writer, producer, and cartoonist. Small Apartments (Anvil Press, 2001), won the 23rd Annual International 3-Day Novel Contest, which Playboy Magazine called ?a coffee-fueled, plot-weaving, literary juggernaut.? The Globe and Mail said of Small Apartments: ?brisk and compact ? surprisingly expansive thematic breadth, a thoughtful, silly yet serious study in goofy pathos.? He adapted Small Apartments into a feature film directed by Jonas Akerlund that had its World Premiere at the 2012 South By Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas. It was an audience favourite as a dark, subversive cult hit, prompting The Hollywood Reporter in its review to classify it as ?singularly weird.?
