I truly enjoyed every story in the book, but my favorites are Siberian Honeymoon, Cosmic Bruja, Last Dance With Heroin, and Star Power. Siberian Honeymoon is a tale of two women hiding from the Russian Government after getting married in the Russia that has criminalized homosexuality. Cantorel puts the bizarre twist by adding the perspective of some feral cats in the frozen Siberian wilderness. Cosmic Bruja feels like a personal and relevant immigrant coming of age story on acid. Last Dance With Heroin snuggles right into the part of me that loves stories about addiction and recovery. Finally, hands down my favorite story of the book, Star Power is about a sentient murderous fortune teller machine, turned sex doll, turned cotton candy dispenser. It is an incredibly creative and surreal tale that reflects everything I like bizarro lit. It is transgressive, unpredictable, and hilarious. I was reading Star Power while waiting at my kid's gymnastics class and I know the other parents thought me odd giggling to myself like "oh s**t" as I read it.
If you are an already established fan of Bizarro Pulp Press then it goes without saying that you should scoop this one up. I would also recommend this to fan's or Brian Allen Carr or C.V. Hunt's short stories. Cantoral definitely has my attention. Cartoons In The Suicide Forest is smart, dark, sexy and already has me looking forward to future releases from Cantoral. When I read a book like this it always makes me curious as to what the author can do in longer form as well. Great Stuff.
Tasty, disgustingly meaty but with a hard candy shell and grams upon hundreds of grams of sugar, take a grand mixture of all of these in with pop culture , it is at its horniest and cartoonish- this is the result.
These shorts by Leza are bizarro gold. And I dislike short fiction. But how can I feel dismayed at a lunacy that is so ripe with satire ( Siberian Honeymoon/Eva Of Oz) and personal touches of Leza's own adoration with classic female characters and of course the comfy home of cartoons and namely Disneys early work. How can the strength of character be replaced by the joy and wonderment of reading this , how can I begin to feel the dread of short fiction and my biased nature to over take when this collection exists?!
One short reminded me of a certain William S Burroughs of whom usually would be found left simmering on a hot day secluded in a hut with a type writer and tripping- there you get NAKED LUNCH.
Leave a heavily dragged and drugged and blushed Burroughs in a winter wonderland cabin with The DISNEY FILM channel on a loop with drugs / and a hot cocoa with heroin laced marshmallows - you get something like CARTOONS IN THE SUICIDE FOREST.
I love this collection. It is a very tasty piece. And showcases a smart woman at her most playful and dangerous.
One story here titled STAR POWER was re-read numerous times for it said a lot about PORN and the INDUSTRY and also about the male dominance and overall power they TRY and OBVIOUSLY think they exhume- being a false sense of belief.
It never feels far too flag waving but there are enough small vignettes and moments that surges this from just a trippy ride to something far more special.
