He is truly an amazing writer. This is not his strongest work, but is representative of what he probably could produce while you were finishing watching the DVD edition of 24, Season 2.

More prolific than Stephen King, and on par as a travel writer with Theroux. The man is a modern marvel, a national treasure, and made me wish I went to Deep Springs for my first two years of college. He sure the hell leads an interesting life. ( )

The author's obsession with the grotesque, abused, and wretched is in full display in this collection of stories aimed to make the Mary Poppins' of the world shed a tear. ( )
