Book Review: Corpsey the Bear by Glastonbury Dex
|5 stars, 1 review|
Author: Glastonbury Dex
Publisher: Outskirts Press
Irreverently Tasteful!A dead bear? This is the most bizarre three bears tale I've come across. Aptly named "Corpsey," he decomposes in the front yard while his parents are off in their own worlds - worlds separated by internet porn, sex, and violence. The parental figures demonstrate their lack of interest so well that it makes me believe the author based the characters on personal experience. A sad commentary of the neglect seen in so many homes, kindled by a society bent on entertainment.
Although the characters are hilarious, the book climaxes in an unexpected way, albeit too late for Corpsey or his parents. The brightest side of the book is augmented by the footnotes in each chapter. Many are pointed at the author's fascination with Elisabeth Shue, lesbians, and re-made history. The book is by no means depressing, and the chapters are kept short, making it the perfect bathroom book. At least that's where I keep mine. I highly recommend this unusual, original, creative book.
