MISCREANTS & MAYHEM BOOKS!
Beautiful on the Outside, Rich on the Inside by Douglas S. Hunter III (Upstate Chamber of Cobras) $20.00 – I think maybe you might need to come read this book right now. So many moons ago we got a book of fiction about wrapping Roy Orbison in Clingfilm. So this book sort of reminds me of that one. Really weird but immediately engaging. It’s about a guy posting a preposterous singles ad on Craigslist about being single and rich that started like this: “I am rich, and when I say rich, I mean I am dictating this to my professional typist while I am sailing to St. Kitts.” All that follows are the responses he’s gotten. And you know how you read something on line and you get sucked in to reading all the comments people make about it under it, and it turns into a big soap opera, people arguing and dialoguing with each other? Well, this reminds me of that too. And you know what else? The logo for the publisher is awesome too, so we’ll paste it in below. And oh! Valentine’s is right around the corner. What better gift to woo a weirdo?
