A positive review

It is always great when someone gets the point.

I once hoped for groupies, but at my age this will do. Still, hope springs eternal.

After reading all these tales of gloom, doom and despair I am depressed on a much higher level than before. I was only a little bit melancholy, but these morose insights brought me to a new height of despondency.

If you, like me, enjoy dark humor where real life scenarios are imaginatively carried to the tippy-top of reality and carried over the edge, then you too will find the above paragraph good news. You will relish the time spent reading them in the same way Gomez Addams consumed Morticia's black-clad arms. Reading these stories doesn't take long and the worst part is when you finish the last and there are no more.

But once you've read the last story, the author provides some insight into his thinking while writing them. This adds a depth to what was just read that I found informative and prolonged the agony in a delightful way.

Not for the faint of heart or overly sensitive. I did not purchase this book, but it was kindly provided by a generous neighbor.
