Sometimes incomprehensible most of the time hilarious great musclemen ( )

Five stars just for the short "I was an infinitely hot and dense dot." One of the craziest, best pieces of American lit anywhere, anytime. ( )

James Joyce collaborating with the Marx brothers on a novel about Mark Leyner. Genre-bending stories and poems that all blend into one another. Like being in a great dream where everythign is impossible, but makes sense. ( )

Book description
Welcome to Mark Leyner's America, where you can order gallium arsenide sushi at a roadside diner, get loaded on a cocktail of growth hormones and anabolic steroids, and support your habit by appearing on TV game shows. Welcome to a wildly post-Einsteinian fictional universe where the locals include a speech pathologist with a waterbug fetish, a kamikaze airline pilot, and the lead singer for Brazils's most notoriously nihilistic samba band.

My Cousin, My Gastroenterologist is fiction the brain can dance to, by one of the funniest and most subversive young writers of this, or any other, decade.
