To sum it up in one sentence: It's a quirky coming of age adventure with a dark sense of humor and a lot of John Calvin quotes.
Tag - Brock Clarke
Like so much of Clarke's work it is full of brutally honest appraisals of human nature and tendencies but also absurd events and dark humor. But Clarke's characters seem remarkably realistic despite the absurdity. He has a way of shining a light on the absurd nature of much of "everyday life."

I break my recent blog silence with some news and notes about authors who have passed and some with new books. Trying to balance things out; Yin and Yang, etc.
