Do Something! Do Something! Do Something!

In this fragmented, nontraditional narrative, Riippi explores the aftermath of stories rather than simply telling them: a critic chants Sontag in a mental hospital; a playwright flees human shrapnel; a starfish tattoo endows a woman with newfound strength. do something!... is a story of great literary power, one that "might just change the way you look at life."
Paperback, 177 pages

Let's just say that I can't freaking wait to teach this book. Can't wait for Joe's next literary smack to my fictional ass!
