    i couldn t get past the fourth story i m sorry i just could not finish this book and it is one of four i have ever put down before i have finished and i mean, i finished jurassic park for christ s sake but i could not get over the pomposity and arrogance and self centered prose of these stories, it just bled right through, the smug little smarmy smile on hi face behind every one of the pieces normally, i like this type of content, the quirky, the witty, the filthy but not this time.

    Benjamin Weissman is one wild author and if he was the driver you better hold on for dear life The beauty of his short narrations is that he s an excellent driver and you as the rider should just say hey you drive, and I sit here Why he s not super famous with a death cult devoted to him is beyond me He s great.

    One out of every hundred or so books literally makes me laugh out loud, and this one did it Weissman is really good at hitting you out of nowhere with absurdist, crass humor stated very matter of fact ly I can t quite give it five stars, though, because the quality is somewhat inconsistent, which is especially easy to notice because the three in my opinion best stories come at near the beginning and end of the book, so the middle is a relative disappointment.

    A bit of a disappointment after the great Dear Dead Person so many years prior, but there are a couple of really good stories mixed in with the so so ones Get Dear Dead Person for a real thrillride though that collection is truly great.

    Have you ever had a conversation with a 13 year old boy who wanted to impress you This feels exactly like that, but written down There will always be a full stable of lame, shock value obsessed white men who seem to think that gimmicky stuff like OMG BODILY FLUIDS and big boy swears makes them OMGUNIQUE and SOOOREBELLIOUS who desperately wish they had the success of Chuck Palahnuik on 1 5 effort, so I am sure they will still have an audience Numbing, samey stuff about as original as bath Have you ever had a conversation with a 13 year old boy who wanted to impress you This feels exactly like that, but written down There will always be a full stable of lame, shock value obsessed white men who seem to think that gimmicky stuff like OMG BODILY FLUIDS and big boy swears makes them OMGUNIQUE and SOOOREBELLIOUS who desperately wish they had the success of Chuck Palahnuik on 1 5 effort, so I am sure they will still have an audience Numbing, samey stuff about as original as bathroom stall scrawl with the same amount of thought provoking quality of weak, forced attempts at transgressiveness think I might just be too big a kid for this kind of hackneyed affectation of adolescent boldness

    3 out of these 22 selections are worth a damn the other 19 are juvenile and badly written, shock for shock value I m a huge fan of transgressive fiction but not every goddamn story has to do with fecal matter to be quite honest, I only bought this book as a cover buy for the quote by Bret Easton Ellis, a writer who I greatly respect but he was wrong with this trash one of the worst reads of the year read only for Marnie Cliff Pink Slip of Wood and maybe Enchanted Forest.

    I revisited this book after reading it in my early twenties Back then, I was blown away by this book I loved how brazenly bizarre, absurd, and short a story COULD be, but now that I m grizzled I just couldn t get into this book Unless I completely missed the point, I felt like Weissman s stories were weird for the sake of being weird Shocking to be simply shocking No substance to them It was mostly fluff though Clare was, by far, the best story, in my humble opinion I do appreciate th I revisited this book after reading it in my early twenties Back then, I was blown away by this book I loved how brazenly bizarre, absurd, and short a story COULD be, but now that I m grizzled I just couldn t get into this book Unless I completely missed the point, I felt like Weissman s stories were weird for the sake of being weird Shocking to be simply shocking No substance to them It was mostly fluff though Clare was, by far, the best story, in my humble opinion I do appreciate the fact that stories like these could be published though I m not sure if an independent press in 2014 would publish a short story collection like this again

    Honestly, there was not much in this book that was very memorable and I feel like the author is trying to beclever than he is I think Clare was the most interesting one, where his friend asks him to knock her up The fecality of it all was funny but gross, as he talks about how he got feces on his computer A lot of potty humor.

  9. James says:

    Not really my cup of tea If I had picked it up in late High School or early College I probably would of liked it.Crass, violent, obscure pop culture references, and slightly witty.I really won t seek out this book.
