I also particularly enjoyed the collection of "Mr. Penny" stories that close out the book. My goodness, what a sad, fascinating, pitiful yet endearing character that Mr. Penny is. These stood out for me due to the consistent and peculiar style and voice Rolli uses in all of them. You find out all you need to know about Mr. Penny without really having to be told anything.
Throughout the whole collection - there is a bit of vulgarity here and there, a little mayhem and, as I've mentioned, some fairly shocking moments. But Rolli is a tremendous writer and he handles it all with skill and creative flair. I couldn't shake the curious feeling of 'what's coming next' until I finally, regretfully, finished this book. And that's really the most fun and worthwhile part of a short story collection. Each finds his or her own favorite pieces, yet still enjoys the whole.
And lastly, I'll again emphasize Rolli's wonderful wordsmanship. I may have just used a completely made up term there. Anyways, he's a great writer and "God's Autobio" is top quality art!
