This book is unusual, profound and hilarious¿even more so than Wilson¿s superb first book, The Kafka Effekt. The stories in this collection are fewer in number and longer than the ones in The Kafka Effekt, many of which are short shorts; the last story, in fact, is a novella about an eccentric quasi-nazi who trains animals how to smoke cigarettes for movies, among other things. If you like offbeat, absurdist literature, you¿ll love this book. Wilson¿s writing is dark and vivid, and he is an excellent satirist; he teaches you how to laugh at yourself and the world you live in. Do yourself a favor and check out his latest work. You won¿t be disappointed!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
