Rusty’s Reading List 2017 | May 21, 2017

Dave McGimpsey - LilBastardCover


Let’s talk about something a little cheerier, shall we? (That comment won’t make any sense if you are reading this at any time other than right when I post it.)

I got this book as part of the CFSW 2011 ‘swag bag’, donated by Coach House Books (I believe), but have never read it until now.

It is quite delightful. It is kind of like a diary, told in the form of ‘chubby sonnets’. There is real emotion in here but it is often cloaked in humour. An entertaining book.
