Chinese Gucci by Hosho McCreesh
"Contemporary poet turned debut novelist, Hosho has managed to create one of the most self-absorbed and angsty characters in literature, second only to Holden Caulfield.

Between stalking the girl of his dreams at the Double Rainbow, shirking his re..." Read more of this review »

Hosho liked a quote
Don't Skip Out on Me by Willy Vlautin
“Mr. Reese had told him that life, at its core, was a cruel burden because we had the knowledge that we were born to die. We were born with innocent eyes and those eyes had to see pain and death and deceit and violence and heartache. If we were lucky we lived long enough to see most everything we love die. But, he said, being honorable and truthful took a little of the sting out of it. It made life bearable. Mr. Reese said liars and cowards were the worst people to know because they broke your heart in a world that is built to break your heart. They poured gas on an already cruel and barely controllable fire.”
Willy Vlautin

“so your uncle tells
your brother,
“There’s more
chairs in the
shed.”

And your brother says,
under his breath
so almost no one
can hear, “Well,
what if I don't
want to sit
in the shed?”
Hosho McCreesh, A Deep and Gorgeous Thirst

“Laugh up to the end

through it.”
