Book Description

April 2009
Stripmalling is the story of one young man's embarrassing and hilarious journey to literary awareness. Jonny lives and works in a strip mall in suburban Winnipeg. For some people, this would be an exciting and fulfilling life. But Jonny has a dream: he wants to be a writer. He has almost everything he needs to make this dream come true: a supportive girlfriend, an active imagination, and an abundance of subject matter. There is only one obstacle: his own relentless stupidity. Imagine Proust without all those annoying words and insights. Imagine a book so funny, so clever that even just touching it makes you a smarter, better person. Part journal, part comedy routine, and part graphic novel, Stripmalling is a unique experiment in genre and voice that is ambitious, accessible and laugh - out - loud funny. Parts of Stripmalling have appeared on CBC Radio One's All in a Weekend and in THIS Magazine, filling Station, Word, Event, Matrix, sub - Terrain, and Opium.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mangled, messed up fun 5 Oct 2010
By STEFANO BOSCUTTI - Published on Amazon.com
Fiorentino's "Stripmalling" is a lot of fun. Mangled, messed up fun that rolls and spills all over the place. But that's what makes it fun. Yes, it's very meta. But then what isn't these days. Loved the marked-up screenplay and the lame teen comedy freeze frame snapshots over the closing credits. Go on, immerse yourself.
