meaning if you use it to buy books
I will get a small commission.
One of the things that makes this book weird is the text. It's almost poetry. In fact, I think it is poetry, but just the tricky kind. You think there is going to be regular rhyme and meter, but nope! The meter instead is a little bit uncomfortable -- yet fascinating, like the diner itself.
The illustrations are the same way. They're almost beautiful. . . except they're totally gross! The one that grosses me out the most is on the page that says "...stay away from the ladyfingers. They really are." Eeew! My favorite illustration, however is on the other side of that spread.
In short: it's kinda crazy and kinda creepy, but. . . I like it!
I'd love to see a Bookie Woogie review of it. hehe.
