I have just finished Poe Ballantine’s personal narrative Things I Like About America. It is basically a non-fiction piece made up of short stories (essays) that chronicles his adventures with people as he moved around America. Personally, I think it is brilliant mainly because I am a fan of raw humor. The book has it in spades.
“The first inhaled hit of volatilized cocaine is the best: it launches you through the roof of the sky. There is no greater high. It makes an orgasm seem like a stubbed toe. You love, with the power of God, all things: house plants, bumblebees, lint balls, even the cat shit in the sandbox beneath the sink.”
The series of great quotes and lines from the book has me in a mood for quotes. So tell me what you are reading, and type a quote from the book into the comment section for all of us to enjoy.
If you have written a book, provide us with an elevator version of what your book is about. A quote from it would be nice. A link to your site is nice as well. Don’t be shy. It is free advertising. If you don’t put yourself out there, no one will know, and your words will just be a document in spam. Spam is worse than hell don’t you know.
