I am really enjoying this author's dry wit and winding way of telling his tales. I'm especially enjoying his interjection of the experience he had as a youth when putting the wrong labels on cans, and how he says he's quite sure he knows readers will send him letters praising him of his brilliant symbolism, letters that he's quite sure will mystify him as to their meaning. I'm positive that if I had a chance I would so send such a letter. Cheeky monkey.
I accidently got this as a sample..
