Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Dreaming had always made Darren Fishy’s life sad-complicated. Because he would sleep-walk all puppet like, no control over his actions. Once, when he was nine years old, heavily under the influence of such a dream, Darren killed his sleeping Dad with an axe. Darren was wearing nothing but tighty whities and socks that night (he had not yet made the switch from tighty whities to boxer shorts). He climbed from his bed and walked downstairs to the garage, where he retrieved the axe that his Dad had used earlier that day to chop firewood. He then marched up the stairs into his Dad’s room and struck him several times. One might wonder why his Dad hadn’t woken up after that first swing, screaming agony-ouch and maybe attempting to disarm his son, as most fathers would do in such a situation. This was made near-impossible for Darren’s father, however, because of the fact that Darren had buried the axe deeply into his Dad’s forehead, which smart-doctors say probably killed him. It was all over in one juicy-sickening thunk. The rest of the blows were simply the dreamy overkill of a sleepwalking, axe-wielding nine year old, and served only to create a wholly unnecessary mess of blood and skull fragments. Some days it rains twice. Darren then wet himself while standing over his father’s mangled corpse, all gross.

A good friend of mine highly reccommended this book to me, saying it was the best new book he'd read in years. Our taste often differs, but I decided to trust him and ordered it off of Amazon. I found it in my mailbox one afternoon when I got off work, and later that same night I had already finished it. I couldn't put it down, it was that entertaining. It's a great mix of messed-up yet likable characters, a strong story, and plenty of humor. The humor works perfectly, helping many of the more disturbing parts of the story from becoming too heavy. I often found myself laughing and cringing at the same time, which was a pleasantly new reading experience for me. Overall, this is a great first book from this young author, and I'll definitely be looking out for more of his works in the future.

The FBI, the Italian Mafia, and various neighborhood gangs, all fighting each other for a chance to "off" a no-named gang of-of-of--children? Like Carlton Mellick's books, this book recognizes the absurd and takes you to its center where you swim in it, revel in it, laugh-lap it up, until the last sentence has been read and reread. As a first time author, Brian shows great skill in demanding your attention, and you have no choice but to submit to the characters thoughts, actions, and speech. A must read for anyone who enjoys bizarro-fiction.

I laughed, I cried, I got wet and stabbed someone. I get bored very easily when I read books, even when they're very good, but I couldnt really put this one down. It moves along similarly to the way Chuck Palahniuk's books move, except better(seriously), and is general most easily compared to Chuck Palahniuk's work. This book gets to the point immediately and keeps going.

This book is not very descriptive but that somehow doesnt stop you from getting a very vivid image in your head.

This is the best book I've read since I read The Brothers Karamozov (not kidding).

This book reads like a Dennis Johnson or Carlton Mellick the III book. It's strange and new and original. The jokes are funny and frequent and the surreal and fantastical story is quick and fun and leaves you wanting even more. This book is fast paced, hilarious, violent, sexual, totally wild and yet somehow remains touching and innocent all the while. So, if you want something a little different and lot of fun, than I highly suggest you check it out.
