The best book I've read this year is The Show That Smells
by Derek McCormack. Here's an LA Times review
It's published in the good old US of A by Little House on the Bowery, but personally, I think the Canadian edition is much nicer
, if you're into books as objects, too. The cover is crazier, with those letters being a very bright, very appealing shiny pink. It is printed by Coach House
, so the paper's thicker and nicer, and there's great weird typographic stuff, where letters are sometimes red because they have blood on them. Vampires and carnivals and sawdust and baby blood cotton candy. How is your Monday going?
