This is has quite a bit of sex in it. The plot is about a loser named Kevin who lives over a porn shop. Everyday Kevin's cat brings him a piece of a body. Instead of being the result of a grisly murder of some sort, they are in fact the parts to a living sex doll named June.

June was made for this god/king sort of guy in another dimension where people can be taken apart and put back together in odd ways for various sexual purposes. The god king guy wants June back, because he is in love with the porn star she was modeled after. Unfortunately, Kevin and June have fallen in love. The god/king guy has some crab monsters and evil pornographers at his disposal, and he tries to use them to regain his lost love. There's also a washed-up boxer involved, as well. It's all just too strange to explain.

As you can probably guess from this, there is a lot of sex and gore in this book. A lot of the sex is weird sex, too. Still this is a good book if you aren't too prudish. ( )

While Kevin seems to be just another single guy with a cat, in Piecemeal June, (Eraserhead Press, January 2008) Bizarro author Jordan Krall has a lot in store for his unwitting and rather sweet protagonist.

In a regular world, Kevin modestly lives above a porn shop, works at a pet store and has a friend who has yet to get a handle on being an adult. It’s from an alternative world of mutilated human body parts and three crab-monsters who enjoy nothing more than chomping on puppy legs like humans do pork rinds where June, the sex-doll is created. When Kevin’s cat, Mithra randomly brings her disjointed parts home, Kevin glues the pieces together and his mundane life is transformed.

What moves the book along is Krall’s ability to both disgust and fascinate his readers with imagery that is perverse and downright dirty in one paragraph, and vaguely romantic the next. The reader gets a sense from the beginning what is happening in Kevin’s town, while it takes him the entire book to see it, let alone even try to grasp some understanding of it. That being said, Krall still manages to have a bit of a stun-factor in the end, leaving one to go back and flip through the pages to find the hidden pieces that were there the entire time.

Short, yet not as simple as you’d think, Jordan Krall’s Piecemeal June is as provocative as it is sentimental, leaving love to grace the pages just as much as the bodily fluids. Don’t be surprised if you feel the need to rub one out right along with Macchu, Bacchu, and Frank. ( )

A twisted interdimensional (if that's the correct term for it) tale about perversion, lost love, foulness, and a sex doll. What more can you ask for? This is a quick read that has an interesting plot and some strange interactions (ex. a guy climbing into a woman's crap filled, fortune telling back to enter into another dimension). If you like bizarro fiction than this book will probably be right up your alley. ( )

Oh dear Lord. How do I even begin? Because I am a closet pervert, I ordered this book thinking it was going to be a bizarro pornographic romp. It isn’t, not really, even though the June of the title character is a sex doll come to life, created in the image of a porn actress, and the main character, Kevin, has sex with her. Despite that, this is high bizarro that leaves me conflicted. Too many descriptions of sweat and feet and more feet. But there is a cat. An awesome cat. So you can see my dilemma.

Short, sick, and satisfying, Piecemeal June is Jordan Krall's first book, and boy is it fun. Krall's prose will amuse, disgust, and maybe even arouse the reader as his protagonist assembles and subsequently falls in love with a living sex doll, comes face to face with giant crab monsters, and runs into Simon, the God of Whores; all in under 100 pages. Despite the low page count, the story doesn't feel rushed, on the contrary, it's just the right length. Great if you're in the mood for a short read.

Whether you're a newcomer to bizarro fiction or an old convert, this book should keep you entertained and excite you about Krall's future projects. This guy's a real talent and if you've got a taste for the weird and the right sense of humor (sick!), you'll be hard-pressed not to enjoy Piecemeal June. ( )
