Remembrance of Things I Forgot by Bob   Smith
""A comic book dealer travels back in time to stop George Bush from becoming President...." sounds like the beginning of a joke from one of Bob Smith's monologues. In fact, it is the plot of his new novel - "Remembrance of Things I Forgot."Bob Smit..." Read more of this review »

“Narrow-minded historians will say there's no proof that [Meriwether] Lewis was dude-loving. Another telling indication was that his Newfoundland dog was named "Seaman". Talk about a Freudian slip. What straight man like to go around saying "Seaman, come! Seaman, come!" amid a group of strapping beefcake?”
Bob Smith, Treehab: Tales from My Natural, Wild Life

“I think she’ll like me,” I said, concerned that my own mother wouldn’t like me. My fear exposed the unspoken shame of all families: if you didn’t know the people you were related to, would you befriend them? In the days when families hunted and gathered, this wouldn’t be a question worth pondering, but once butchering a mammoth stopped being a household chore, we began to suspect families are chain gangs held together by manacles of DNA.”
Bob Smith, Remembrance of Things I Forgot: A Novel

“The furniture in the house had the same relationship to real furnishings that drag queens have to real women. Everything was a parody, done either with affection or cruelty.”
Bob Smith, Openly Bob

“Since most parents are reluctant to talk about sex, schools have tried to fill the gap. In America, when we decide to ignore a subject, our favorite form of denial is to teach it incompetently. Familiarity without true understanding is not only the basis of our families but of our educational system as well.”
Bob Smith

“Her smile was like a Samuel Beckett play - easy to read but difficult to interpret.”
Bob Smith

“There are some good things to be said about walking. Not many, but some. Walking takes longer, for example, than any other known form of locomotion except crawling. Thus it stretches time and prolongs life. Life is already too short to waste on speed. I have a friend who's always in a hurry; he never gets anywhere. Walking makes the world much bigger and thus more interesting. You have time to observe the details. The utopian technologists foresee a future for us in which distance is annihilated. … To be everywhere at once is to be nowhere forever, if you ask me.”
Edward Abbey

“The distrust of wit is the beginning of tyranny.”
Edward Abbey

“The most common form of terrorism in the U.S.A. is that carried on by bulldozers and chain saws.”
Edward Abbey
