Between these covers lies a cornucopia of wonders.
Step into a world that defies all logic. One of Masturbatory headphones, diabolically toppled comb-jars, moustache-filled ejaculations, malfunctioning bookmarks, bricolage scrotums, wank fairies and a poorly conceived theory regarding wall stability. A world where ball popping is the only solution to the scrotum's poor aesthetic qualities and true love can lead a man to transpose menstruation across gender lines. Not to mention a blink so immensely powerful that mild abrasion can ensue. There’s also a lime.
Truly some of the strangest stories ever told. In his debut collection Matthew Revert has concocted a bizarre vortex of fiction by turns hilarious, disturbing, thought-provoking and just plain odd. A Million Versions of Right will force you to find logic in the illogic and shun anything resembling common sense.
Like the faecal scrawl of a madman without the unpleasant smell

I read this book a while back. It was an e-book. The publisher has a deal where you can buy two e-book for the price of one. Since this book and author was unfamiliar to me, it was my second choice. There are certain books that are easier to read on the computer screen-simplistic writing, not proceeding at a rapid pace with tons of stuff happening, one after another. This book isn't an "easy" e-book. Not that the writing is "busy." Instead, it's rich and baroque. While reading it, the classical absurdist writers came to my mind. While other authors who are the modern day equivalent of this include Rhys Hughes and Ray Fracalossy. So while the book isn't so "e-book" friendly, I pushed forward because the stories were so good. They were also rather long. The stories are an extreme mixture of lowbrow and highbrow. Having a gross out, dick joke sort of vibe going on, but really contrasting it with highbrow subject matter. The content is absurd and often unreal, and the unique thing about Revert's writing is that it's primarily concerned with how a person would ordinarily react when faced with the absurd and unreal. He takes everyday human experiences and distorts them into until they are totally bizarre while keeping enough of the "everyday" around so it brings to mind the things that many of us experience in our lives. And that is why this book is totally sweet.
