Product Overview

Perhaps one of the most diverse collections of stories one will encounter, A Wonderful Waste of Time embraces comedy, absurdity, complexity, sincerity and yes, stupidity into a compilation that has something in it for everyone. An out-of-work insurance salesman and a stuntman pass the time on a lengthy flight to Japan by discussing life, movies and everything in between. Theories are professed and questions are pondered: Do Japanese women crave hairy chests? What is a graver ? Who is Sampson Paine? And has anyone ever stormed the refrigerator on an airplane to stave off starvation? If that were not enough, the plethora of short stories that follow show the true spirit of this book. From gloriously intense road rage and a chronic-masturbating super-villain to love long lost and stories with Wilde and Kafka familiarity, every new story is a surprise unto itself. A Wonderful Waste of Time is as funny as it is thought-provoking and surreal. Ultimately candid and fresh, this is a must-read for those who shun the beaten path of the written word. *Author: Thomas, Madison *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 452 *Publication Date: 2007/07/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.00 x 1.01 inches
