Editorial Reviews

Review

"It was a true work of artistry for the author to take 26 itty-bitty yarns and spin them into one spectacular, multicolored blanket with which to cover oneself on a cold night. From Amy's stumble down the steps to Zilliah's death by gin, I couldn't read these tales fast enough, and now I am greatly saddened that it has all ended.

Amazingly, I found myself laughing almost as frequently as I sobbed, which is really saying something about Mr. Woodruff's genius. 

Best of all, though, was that all of these stores were told so casually, as if Mr. Woodruff was sitting in his rocker with a corncob pipe in his mouth, telling these macabre tales to his astounded audience." -official OnlineBookClub.org review

"Woodruff put together a grand collection of dark humor within the 26 Absurdities of Tragic Proportions. Each story has a unique look into the depths of dark humor. The author uses imagery and adventure, and of course, misadventure to bring these stories to life."  -Amy's Bookshelf Reviews
