The wry sarcasm and dry analysis of American history and culture makes this book a great read. Sarah Vowell's sardonic take on nearly everything we as Americans have come to experience in our lives makes you learn something about yourself as well as ...more

Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron
by Daniel Clowes
recommended for: fans of the weird

Clear rating
It's Dan Clowes at his Clowesiest.

The story doesn't make too much sense if you take it at face value. It's short enough to re-read and catch things you missed the first time. One of the things that kept me from really enjoying it is the limit amount

This is the most convaluted book I've read, and I loved it to death. You can never really be sure what is real, what will happen next, or why anything is happening. But really, you don't need to know. It just happens and it's a great story.

One of my new favorites, I picked it up because I am a fan of Hugh Laurie's television work. He's actually a very good fiction writer, and was able to keep up the suspense as Thomas Lang delves deeper into the quagmire he's found himself in. An an ...more
