Tom Bradley (Lemur author) has a very entertaining review of fellow bizarro author Jordan Krall’s Piecemeal June in the new issue of The Dream People.

Here’s just one of his nuggets of wisdom:
“…we will close Piecemeal June unable to forget what has been done to our heads. Shakespeare goofed. Krall has discover’d that country, and taken us deep into its dripping bourn. And he has returned us travellers, for now, with most of our consciousness intact, leaving behind only those ragged bits sliced off and swallowed by this novel. He has taken our personality, our person, our personhood, stripped it layer by conscious layer like an especially stinky onion, and dropped us off at home in the seventh circle of hell…”

    brilliant–if I do say so myself

    Here’s the “goofed” passage from Shakespeare which Tom Bradley (me) is playing with in the Piecemeal June review:

    The undiscover’d country from whose bourn
    No traveller returns…

    He’s talking about the Big D, of course.

    I am glad you like the review, Jennifer!
