This book is Shel Silverstein* for grown ups, especially those grown-ups with a twisted sense of humor. Actually, I'd absolutely love to see this book published with Silverstein-inspired illustrations to go with these witty and ironic pondering. These stories and poems are smart, strange, sarcastic and sometimes quite deep. I can't say I loved them all, but every story was unique and interesting. Each story had it's own voice and style. Though I'm not a huge fan of either short stories or poetry, this book was such an enjoyable read. And to top it all, this is a $ .99 book (& currently free on Amazon, but I don't know for how long)!
This is a fun cover that fits the book quite well. I love the block-print look to the graphics.
