Someone help clean up my own vomit. This was horrible. ( )
  librarianbryan | Apr 20, 2012 |
It's got an upside-down out-of-focus photo for a cover, it's put out by some publishing house called "Red Lemonade," and it's described by Amazon as "experimental." Yes, this one is about as off-kilter as you'd expect it to be. Amazon's overstating the case, of course;" "Someday This Will Be Funny" isn't genre-busting, but it's not bad, either. Tillman's good at playing around the edges of fictions and various non-fictional forms, and there's an adventurous "try anything once" air to a lot of these little stories. Not everything works, of course: the less said about the story narrated from the point of view of Clarence Thomas, the better. Still, it's fun to watch a genuinely interesting writer look in to the stranger corners of her imagination just to see what might be lurking there. ( )

No descriptions found.

"The stories in 'Someday This Will Be Funny' marry memory to moment in a union of narrative form as immaculate and imperfect as the characters damned to act them out on page..."--P. [4] of cover.
