it was amazing

This small book is deceptive looking. It’s slight looking, only 200 pages. The stories are short; some only four pages long. But, oh how this author can make you think in four pages! These tiny gems are all surrealistic. There are walking trees and aliens and severed heads that talk and an octopus that lives in an upstairs apartment, collects teaspoons and loves Darjeeling tea. They demand that you suspend disbelief and accept their own internal logic.

I gobbled these stories up in two nights, unable to stop reading them. Some are funny, some creepy. Some made me go “Huh?” They are all… odd, in a through the looking glass sort of way, and they are mostly all fun to read.
