Overqualified by Joey Comeau
Overqualified by Joey Comeau
Overqualified is a surprisingly funny, witty and touching collection of job application cover letters written by Joey Comeau himself to various corporations and companies. The letters take unexpected turns when the authors starts sharing life experiences and all sorts of childhood and teenage memories.
The sheers originality of this book is a pure delight. Don't let the format put you off, for Joey Comeau makes the reading of cover letters a pure blast!
Bad Alchemy by Jordan Krall
Bad Alchemy by Jordan Krall
About half-way through the book, I quit trying to make sense of the plot and focused on enjoying the incredibly enchanting, Burroughsesque prose of Jordan Krall. The recurring themes of paranoia, conspiracy theory and existential trepidation are further developed in this second volume, and brilliantly so. The unsettling atmosphere of this Universe is somewhat reminiscent of the works of Todd Solondz, only more psychedelic and experimental.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, 16 May 2014
Jordan Krall, one of the undisputed masters of modern weird fiction, delivers an unsettling and highly entrancing book - Book 1 of the False Kingdom trilogy- with emotional depth and intriguing characters. Once I got accustomed to the rather unusually shattered narrative and started putting together the pieces of the puzzle, I couldn't put the book down.
