really liked it

It baffles me how this got in the non-fiction category, but at its heart, Pure Drivel is a selection of absurd short stories, some of them verging on flash fiction. I particularly enjoyed the closing pieces about the shortage of periods in Times New Roman (the most loathed font ever), "Bad Dog" and "Side Effects."

I listened to this one, rather than read it, and I feel like it was the right banana.

Matt Just read this, absolutely loved it, and I must admit I will have to track down an audio copy as something like this would be wonderful to listen to. Namaste.
