With Dean Dean Dean Dean Jim O’Loughlin adds a touch of the absurd to the proud tradition of American humor writing, following in a long line established by Mark Twain and contributed to by authors such as James Thurber, Woody Allen, Steve Martin and, most recently, David Sedaris. However, he merges the tradition with the twenty-first-century literary genre of flash fiction, combining some experimental pieces with more traditionally told narratives for a collection that is as thought-provoking as it is entertaining. Stories in the collection have been published in numerous journals, among them La Petite Zine, North American Review and McSweeney's Internet Tendency.
