    My Wife and My Dead Wife

    I have now read three books from this author. Three completely different books. Three excellent reads. Keep bringing them on, Mr. Kun!

    My Wife and My Dead Wife

    I've just read the galley for Mike Kun's new novel, My Wife and My Dead Wife. Putting aside a few typos, which hopefully will be corrected before it is printed in final, it is yet another comic masterpiece from the author of The Locklear Letters, last year's sadly overlooked gem. Kun's characters are always funny, yet ring true at the same time. He can make you laugh out loud one minute, then feel a crashing wave of sadness the next, and somehow make it all fit together.

    My Wife and My Dead Wife

    My Wife and My Dead Wife is the funniest book of 2004, at least so far. The narrator has an unusual, distinctive voice that propels the book forward. He's a bit of a sad sack, but a funny one -- is there such a thing as a 'funny sack'? I just loved him and I loved this book!
