if you think it's strange now...
you ain't seen nothing yet... i enjoyed the elvis references in the chapter of euchrids birth, (dead twin buried in a shoebox etc.) and the chapter about the coming of the storm. if memory serves me correctly the third book - doghead, is definately the weirdest.
i thought that you'd be able to relate to the plight of euchrid.
when you were growing up in that deep south trailer park, didn't you have a shoebox labelled 'clippings' that was full of scabs, fingernails, hair, dead skin and bloody bandages?
i'm about 140 pages into it.
