This review is from: I Know Why the Caged Pig Oinks: And Other Love Stories (Paperback)
I very much enjoyed "I Know Why The Caged Pink Oinks." It fulfills its purpose to the letter: to lighten the reader's heart and to "make 'em laugh!" Mr. Royce is wonderfully unassuming with this collection of comics, sketches, and humorous stories. The jokes are sometimes irreverent, sometimes innocently silly, and always intelligent and observant. Mr. Royce stays bright and colorful without being grating on his audience, as befitting a master of comedic subtlety.
My favorites were the post-card narrations and "The Collaboration." Fellow artists will sympathize with the two characters attempting dismally to get a project off the ground! Best line: "We are way past the beginning! We've got to start thinking about the middle." "A middle?" "Every good story's got one! I don't know where you've been."
I eagerly look forward to reading Mr. Royce's forthcoming memoir, and any other future work of his.
