About the Author
He once noted that writing isn't life, it's an absence of life. If this is the case then he doesn't even exist as his writing has appeared in over 50 publications, each one more obscure than the next. He happily doesn't exist on the literary fringes and daily on his eponymous website.

“Whatcha doin'? lunacy about the author at a party in the bathroom, he wrestles with a talking snowman slides on hand sanitizer rips his head open on the toilet paper holder, pulls the toilet out of the floor and marvels at the gushing fountain, marvels that it is the only satisfying part of the evening.
and the lunaticier chapter: The Council of Jeffs: a debate on how many jeffs it takes to create a council of Jeffs etc”
There is no plot to this book and no characters except the author and his penis and a few other undeveloped characters. The About the author section may explain the whole book:
“Unless you've read and rejected George Steiner's book Real Presences: Is There Anything In What We Say? you'll never understand Lance Manion. His writing aims to violate “the small house of our cautionary being” and leave it “no longer inhabitable in quite the same way as it was before.” As well as give you something to read on the toilet. Mostly to give you something to read on the toilet.” If you are looking for something more than that you wont find it here.
Zero ha has
Bottom line: You can live a better life without this book distressing you.
Lance leaves no foible unturned and offers equal opportunity roasting. He invites you to step back from your mad dash through life to chuckle at yourself and anyone you are likely to encounter. Lance gives equal time to his own foibles. He finds the comical in the most mundane activities which you might ordinarily not give a second thought.
He offers you a chance to step aside for a moment from your frenetic pace and stroll through the whimsical world of the senses and imagination. Although most of his stories are just plain funny, he also graces us with some heart wrenching fantasies, regrets and unfulfilled wishes. If you are easily offended, expect the screw to turn a bit at some point in your reading. Hopefully you can get over it and enjoy the ride before you return to the rat race.
If you are like me there is a bit of excitement when introducing the work of an new writer to others but what really makes me smile is watching that expression cross their face as their initial cynical prejudgement fades and is replaced by awe and amusement. Reading his work aloud publicly is fun too, watching passers by linger a bit as you narrate his uniquely descriptive tales is particularly satisfying. He tells heroic stories of embarrassment, the bizarre but entertaining perspectives of unexpected creatures and objects, the deep seeded thoughts that none of us want to admit and and is truly the aspiring personification of Kilgore Trout.
