really liked it
Read from February 02 to 18, 2012

Too short for short stories, too long for cookie fortunes, this is a collection of non-lyrical poetry. Beautiful, funny, some dark and some not. My favorites are 'Cold-Blooded', 'Alien Territory', the riffs on other stories e,g, 'The Little Red Hen Tells All' and 'Gertrude Talks Back" [to Hamlet, of course], and finally the parentally correct bit on Barbie in 'The Female Body'.
