How many writers can successfully combine necrophilia, spider-chewing, a dog spitting genitals, a streaking cannibal, incest, Pavarotti, a suicide museum and the fine smell of freshly-baked bread in one novel? That's right. One writer: Dan Rhodes.

This is my first Rhodes book and I am impressed by his writing, sense of humor and variety of characters. Dan Rhodes is one twisted individual and I say that in the kindest way. If Tim Burton and Robert Rodriguez wrote a novel together, this would be it. It's nice knowing that there are contemporary writers who can still amaze with the originality of their ideas. A great, entertaining, multi-layered read - despite the fact that it can gross you out a bit at times.
