really liked it
bookshelves: innovative-fiction, great-short-story-collections, literary-fiction
Read in January, 1998

Jerry Bumpus is a really interesting, v original writer. The stories are funny, odd, often voice-driven, which I prefer. There are a number of stand-outs: "Popinjay's African Notes" is the one that comes to mind now.
