Editorial Reviews

Review

"Gutmouth is one of the juiciest, slimiest, sleaziest things I've come across. Dripping black noir set in a world you can practically smell thanks to Gabino's excellent descriptive passages and wonderfully whacked imagination. One of the best New Bizarro Author Series books I've read."
- Steve Lowe, author of Samurai Vs. Robo-Dick and Mio Padre, Il Tumore

"Gabino Iglesias's passion for the bizarro genre is loud and clear in his debut novella Gutmouth. I thoroughly enjoyed myself while spending time in the strange world Gabino has created. Now if you'll excuse me, it's time for my Algolagnix injection, and if you need me, I'll be at the Ampu-titties Club."
- Shane Mckenzie, author of All You Can Eat and Muerte Con Carne

"Gutmouth is partway between Ugly Americans and that old Pixy comic book. In the best possible way. Consistently, persistently inventive, lots of peek-through-the-fingers scenes, and it's got a very nice structure to it."
- Stephen Graham Jones, author of The Last Final Girl and Growing Up Dead in Texas

"If you like your bizarro awesome, gritty, twisted, a little stomach turning and you want to be severely entertained, then this is a book for you."
- Rants Raves Views and Reviews

"Gutmouth's world is one of gruff brutality, genital mutilation centers, amputee prostitutes, and kleptomaniac roaches, all struggling to make it day-to-day in a city shattered by corporate invasion and decadence taken to Bizarro extremes. Brutal and bleak as a Burroughs routine, but just as shockingly strange and perversely funny, Gutmouth has plenty to offer readers with a taste for the extreme. Iglesias is an author to watch."
- Ross E. Lockhart, author of Chick Bassist

Format: Paperback
Gabino Iglesias's NBAS debut GUTMOUTH is gritty mutant noir, filled with desperation, murder, and a guy with a mouth in his gut. A company enforcer, driven to violence by the lecherous, foul-mouthed parasite Philippe, Gutmouth Dedmon languishes in a fleshy pink jail cell, watched by giant eyeballs and guarded by a squid. Gutmouth's world is one of gruff brutality, genital mutilation centers, amputee prostitutes, and kleptomaniac roaches, all struggling to make it day-to-day in a city shattered by corporate invasion and decadence taken to Bizarro extremes. Brutal and bleak as a Burroughs routine, but just as shockingly strange and perversely funny, GUTMOUTH has plenty to offer readers with a taste for the extreme. Iglesias is an author to watch.

I don't generally venture into the Bizarro world, but with Gutmouth I was treated with a twisted fantasy that really left me scratching my head in the best way possible. Gutmouth is like a cross of a Mr. Bungle song with Blade Runner, it's got this dystopian sex and violence thing going on one minute, and morphs into a slew of curious thoughts on the human condition from the bleakest point of view possible. While I'm no scholar in this genre, I was enamored by the wit and skill of the presentation, and if anyone ever asks me what's the strangest thing I've read, Gutmouth wins that award tenfold. If you're looking for something that's just off the wall with concepts that defy logic and turn on the rainbow fist section of your brain, this is for you.

Gutmouth is a great place for someone to start with the Bizarro genre, and by all means should you seek out Gabino on twitter and ask him endless questions about where someone comes up with the idea for a guy who's got a British, spikey toothed mouth for a stomach, coupled with plug in and get weird sex toys brought to you by everyone's favorite conglomeration. Oh, and there is a one legged hooker with three boobs.

Get out and get weird with Gutmouth.

Welcome to the future! Consume!

"Gutmouth" by Gabino Iglesias takes place in a future where everything is run and mutated by Megacorp, a huge corporation that took over from the government by releasing a biological agent that created mutations and only they knew how to control them. Insert Monsanto joke here.

Our hero (as it were) has a particular mutation that caused him to grow an obnoxious talking mouth in his gut. Actually, the author seems to have put a lot of thought into how this could physiologically work. That's a little more disturbing than anything else.

When his hooker girlfriend cheats on him with the mouth, he decides to exact revenge on her. But how can he do this when everything is watched by Megacorp? How does one take out a potentially valuable consumer without notice?

I found this book surprising in more ways than one. To start, the editing is actually quite good. Editing problems are a common complaint I've had with bizarro books, and so far this year's class of the New Bizarro Authors Series, of which this book is a part, has been surprising me in this regard. It bodes well for the future.

This book is bleak. I mean really bleak. It depicts a heavy dystopian future that may turn some readers off. Still, if that's your thing, you'll probably like this book. It's really a matter of taste.

A complaint I do have is that there aren't many surprises. Most of the book is told as a noir-style flashback. We sort of know what happened, but we're watching it carried out. And it sort of plays out the way you would expect. Up until the end (and there is a bit of a surprise at the end), it felt a bit like the movie "The Man Who Wasn't There." But there's not a whole lot else.

Format: Paperback
In his debut novel, Gabino Iglesias, has secured himself as one of my new favorite authors in this crazy genre called bizarro. Gabino has done something here most writers only wish to do: take all the things they love and weave them into something that is entirely its own beast. One of the things that makes it worth your time, aside from the insanity of it all, is his prose. The world he has created is filled with nothing good. It's ugly, brutal, and violent, but he writes about it with such poetic flare, that it all becomes beautifully grotesque and you never want to leave. It took me four days to finish the 84 pages because I kept going back to re-read passages. The writing is that good. I would put this up there with the best of early William S. Burroughs, and David Cronenberg. I seriously can't wait for Gabino's next book. It's a good thing I have this fantastic little book filled with body mutations and perverse sex to hold me over.

Hardboiled Bizarro-noir jam-packed with great imagery and plenty of wild concepts (some, actually, not that far off from our current reality). Gutmouth is a simple story told in very fun, exciting fashion, with more Bizarro ideas than a lot of tales twice its size. I could have read this in a single sitting, but decided to take a break halfway through, just to make it last a little longer. Highly recommended for fans of speculative fiction, crime stories and the ultra-weird.
