A BLEND OF HONESTY AND FICTION
on May 28, 2016
This is either a collection of short stories or a collection of personal essays. The author wants you to think they are true stories, but I don’t buy that. Perhaps the word is magical thinking. He might actually think that if he says it is true, it might be.
He’s brutally honest about his failings, and doesn’t mind sharing embarrassing moments. If you decide to read this collection skip over the one about how he killed a little white mouse in his bathtub.
The author at times seems to have the sensibilities of a serial killer. The next time I buy one of his books, it goes on the fictional shelf.
