Overview

The Life Story Of A Chilean Sea Blob And Other Matters Of Importance by Theodore Carter

Much as Theodore Carter's title sea blob proves a challenge to classify, the other matters of importance in this, the author's debut, story collection emerge as equally amorphous and downright slippery when it comes to categorization. Yet, fleshy narrative makes indexing possible by way of a catalogue of characters who aren't simply arranged, but rarities that act-largely at great personal risk. From the competitive eater working against an internal clock to a disengaged young man beguiled by an animate voodoo doll, from a junior-high water-walker to an eyebrow arsonist, the affable oddities of The Life Story of a Chilean Sea Blob and Other Matters of Importance confront doubt in its multifarious forms, establishing classification-organized into engaging, compelling, and affecting-as tantamount to the anomalous lives we lead.

wow this is quite a promising debut. the surreal, dreamlike images and themes remind me of haruki murakami, with the humor of sherman alexie mixed in. i can't wait to read what else theodore carter has in store for us!

A friend recommended this book to me even though I am not a huge fan of short stories...and I was so glad I picked it up! I was transported into a world where voodoo dolls have a life of their own, party-goers unwrap mummies for fun, and a boy learns to walk on water. A unique and unforgettable book!

I don’t know the last time I had so much fun reading a collection of short stories. Carter’s wild imagination pops off every page with each story bringing something new and unexpected. I laughed out loud not only at the madcap moments but also at the dry wit. I highly recommend taking a plunge into the surreal and imaginative world of the Chilean Sea Blob!
