    WONDERFUL BEYOND DESCRIPTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    'Makes me sad that the Golden Age of Hollywood is so long past. This book would have made FANTASTIC source material for
    one of Vincent Minnellis' lavish MGM productions. 'Score by Arthur Freed, of course. I see the fabulous Judy Garland, Fred Astaire,
    Mickey Rooney and June Allison in the leads! George Kaufman, of course, would have written the screenplay.




    Well............... a fan can dream! :-)

    I Also Recommend:

    A challenging, surreal book that stays with you.

    Originally I gave this 4 stars, but after a long chat with Blake Butler I think I'm going to give it 5. The more it sits with me, the more I like it.

    The Orange Eats Creeps (Two Dollar Radio) by Grace Krilanovich has been getting a lot of attention. When Steve Erickson says about your book, ".if a new literature is at hand then it might as well begin here," you know that this is something different. Set in the Pacific Northwest in the 1990s this is the story of a band of "hobo vampire junkies" who roam the woods strung out on meth, cruising underground rock concerts, in a hallucinatory daze. This is the story of a girl with "drug-induced ESP" who is searching for her lost foster sister, a surreal vision of her lost life, a narrative that is disjointed, fragmented, and surprisingly touching.

    I have to admit that I struggled with this book at first, until I realized that I had to let go what I thought a book should be, what a story should be, and just let the book take me over. This book has been compared to such challenging and visionary voices as William Burroughs, William Blake, Céline and Henry Rollins, and reading the blurbs by Steve Erickson and Brian Evenson, I was immediately reminded of their work as well. It's a wild ride, and this book is not for everyone.

    [continued at The Nervous Breakdown, where Blake Butler and I discuss this book at great length]
