Editorial Reviews

Review

A sad and creepy work which, like all science fiction, is really about the present... Entertaining and at times haunting. -- William T. Vollmann

Dirty and alive... -- Steve Aylett

Format: Paperback
The Garbageman and the Prostitute is a mystery novel for its readers. Each chapter is written from the point of view of a different character, told out of order. Wentz makes us search for clues to what's going in his peculiar world and look for connections between the characters. Most authors who have the audacity to write a novel like this wouldn't be able to pull off what Wentz has accomplished here. With his crisp, entertaining writing, he gives us enough information to intrigue and make our investigation into the book a pleasurable experience.

Format: Paperback
The first pages of the book sell it self. It is so captivating and interesting that you begin to formulate a world and scene. It has the "who done it?" flavor but not a cliché as most who done books are.

If you love interesting, sharp, funny, witty characters and a unique writing style then this is your book. This is basically a book for anyone who enjoys reading, so do yourself a favor a purchase a worthwhile book.....you won't regret it I promise.

Format: Paperback
A must read for those with a different outlook on life, a realistic and well written book about the daily struggle between man and religion, money, government, sex, law, and human apathy. Zach's sentences are well written and cleverly structured and the story stays interesting and each chapter is like a different yet equally important piece to the puzzle. A great read and great artwork as well. Check out kill me tomorrow too.
