Oh, yes. I've read all of Franklin. This is probably his most perverse and demented of all his books. CLCL this is not. Smonk is a malicious psychopathic dwarf who comes home to Old Texas, Alabama, to reap murder, mayhem, and general havoc. Ultimate case of little man syndrome. *grin* Have fun!

I just bought it too! I'm reading Infinite Jest right now, so that will take me a good while to read, but I'll probably read Smonk after that and we can talk about it!


Kathy | 157 comments Smonk and Infinite Jest, hmm, interesting combo.

I just finished IJ last night, but right now I'm starting The Optomist's Daughter. Smonk's gonna have to wait a bit! But it's going to be nice having a couple short reads now!
