The Squirrel that Dreamt of Madness
May 13, 2013
At the end of the book, (No spoiler here) an interviewer talks with the author, Craig Stone, calling him a master of metaphor. He is indeed. The story of a man living homeless in a London park by choice is delightful, colorful and dotted sometimes with poignancy. At one point, Colossis Sosloss, the main character describes his plight as trying to pin a carrot on the tale of donkey when the carrot is as big as the donkey. There are wise original adages interspersed with insightful descriptions and actions. A very good read that is like literary stand-up comedy mixed with lively narrative.
