This book of prose-poetry started out so funny and strong, I thought wow! But I'm pretty sure it piddled out because when I finished it, I felt let down by everything past the first 1/3. My feeling, and who knows, was that it began as a rampaging languagey satire of certain cliche roles in a particular type of family, but by the time I got to the end, I had lost touch with the rampaging satire aspect...
