it was amazing
bookshelves: laugh-riots

Dead old people falling from the sky. Intellectuals violently debating the merits of drinking vinegar. Rancid sausage. Children dissapearing. Bottomless trash cans.

Each little story in this book is a handful of sentences that is ape-shit crazy nonsense. Punishingly funny stuff. Crying hot tears funny.

The Soviets were so threatened by Daniil Kharm's absurdism that they arrested him and he starved in prison.

Yes. This ridiculous-ass stuff was considered threatening. Radical.

Perfect for reading aloud to friends.
