Kind of a funny book here from the people at McSweeney's. I should disclose I am not normally a McSweeney's fan. I'm not sure if I just 'don't get it', I'm a few rungs down on the 'hip ladder' or what. This book is kind of like if Joe Meno's 'The Boy Detective Fails' met up with Charlie Kaufman's Adaptation and they had a love child. And then they would incessantly read '100 Years of Solitude' as bedtime stories. Said lovechild would probably write this book.

I'll get back to this book when Mr. Cormac McCarthy loosens his icy grip on my brain.

Recommended Soundtrack:

Oriana Whoa. I know this makes me a bit trite, but your somewhat derisive description makes me really want to read this!!

Nick Its really a unique book. I plan on getting back to it soon. I intended to kind of just jab at McSweeney's, in no way this little slice of delight.
