This review is from: Slowly Downward: A Collection of Miserable Stories (Paperback)
This compilation of quite mad ideas, adventures and emotions is brilliant. I've never read anything that hit me in emotional soft points like this did. The bleak outlook on life that the stories conjure is enough to make you cry; but then you are made happy by the beauty of the writing, and the falsity and irrelevance of it all. For me, it's a very satisfiying purchase. Everyone should read material like this as it makes you view life in a much more delicate way; and radiohead fanatics should read this with great satisfaction, as Stanley writes with the same style as thom yorke writes his lyrics. 5 star.
