I will admit that the American education system failed to teach me much about how populations/cultures/countries, etc got abolished by other nations, so it was good to read in one aspect for it made me want to learn more about the history of Crimea and Turkey. It was great to read in other aspects because this is one very visually creative author. The images he conjured up for me were ones I would never have thought up on my own, and I'd like to think I'm creative.
The short stories in this book take you on different adventures throughout Brooklyn, NYC, in differing time periods, but all focusing on a post-9/11 NYC. Being a South Asian NYer, I resonated with a lot of what the author brought out in his various characters.
Something I'll definitely take away from this book (to make my husband laugh, mostly) is his use of "Pap Smear Ribbon" beer. That was awesome.
Want to chuckle and also get a dose of realities that are not represented in the main stream culture? Then read this.
psychodelia....here are some folks who will read it and be catipulted very far from their universe i pictured the nation of islam cat reading it and having a very confused reaction to it yeah, it was very punk rock me against the world i can see it becoming a book that is studied in an ethnic studies class in many universities.
