Read from January 18 to February 12, 2010

You can tell that David David had a hell of a good time writing Death by Zamoboni. This is one funny book. The word play is hilarious, bringing to mind Groucho Marx on crank. The story is a simple enough detective-trying-to-find-missing-spouse story line. The best thing about Zamboni is not necessarily the story line, but, instead the narrative voice (the singer not the song). Katzman is a very funny man. He gets so twisted up in some of his word play and surreal tangents that you wonder if he is going to be able to loop back into the story without it seeming forced. But he always sticks his landing from his bizarre little sidetrips and the story is all the better for such efforts. I look forward to seeing if he plans on writing any other books. I hope so.
