Read on August 05, 2012

Going into this I had no idea what to expect from this novella, other than — according to my good friend (ifer) — it being incredibly funny and that mind-fuckery would occur. Having spent the afternoon reading Arthur Graham’s novella I can safely agree that mind-fuckage did indeed occur. My mind feels as if Kurt Vonnegut, Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins, William S. Burroughs, and Alejandro Jodorowsky got together and gave it a thorough, yet enjoyable, gang bang, while David Lynch sat to the side having a piece of cherry pie and a damn fine cup of coffee.

Editorial is a funny as fuck, meta-fictional, self-referencing Möbius strip. An acid trip which involves (among other things) chronic masturbation, shape-shifting, dolphin rape, a frog-man/man-frog, killer books, and transvestite bear sex. There wasn’t a single page where I did not laugh myself silly nor where my thoughts were not roundly provoked.

Read it. Seriously.

Nick Thanks for recommending it to me! :)

Nick The ending killed, how it brought all of the multiple, shifting narratives together.
