“No,” he says. “You will not rape this woman. I love her. You...rape too much. You shouldn't do that—It's not nice.”

This is said by Wilmorn, the man-sized left nipple of a dead Caribbean shaman when he stands up to his chain-smoking, serial rapist animal familiar, Stalin. Stalin is not The Stalin. He's just a baby-faced lobster serving the seagull gods and guiding the nipple on this mission through New York City. See, Wilmorn made a pact with the seagull gods. He has seven days to make the lesbi

Seven Seagulls for a Single Nipple by Troy Chambers is sixty-two pages of pure wild, insane yum.

Do you like voodoo? Eh? I do. Do what? Enjoy this book immensely!

Troy Chambers' short, hilarious novella about a love-struck sentient nipple searching the streets of New York for the Lesbian-Nun Love of his life was one of the funnest books I have read in a long time.

The Nipple (named "Wilmorn") is accompanied on his quest by a baby-faced lobster creature with a foul mouth, a nicotine addiction, and an unusual habit (which I won't get into here, but was struck by the "Johnny-The-Homicidal-Maniac
