This review is from: Pastoralia (Paperback)
I'm not widely read, nor a literary scholar so perhaps not best positioned to judge, but ...
This is the first stuff by him that I have read (recommended to me by a friend), I had reservations from reading the reviews but I did enjoy it, finished the lot very quickly.
Overall the stories seemed to me like an exaggerated Douglas Coupland, in a good way.
Dysfunction, social comment and the contradictions of the 'human condition' cranked up, hammed up, and presented for our entertainment.
I was highly entertained and didn't find it as pretentious as the reviews made it sound.
Will be buying another title by him
