Fourth Blurb For “Roses are Red, Violets are Stealing Loose Change from my Pockets While I Sleep” – Ken Brosky!

Fourth blurb for Roses are Red, Violets are Stealing Loose Change from my Pockets While I Sleep! This one is from Ken Brosky, author of The Proving and co-author of The Grimm Chronicles:

David Atkinson is the only author alive who can write absurdist-magical-humorous-poignant fiction, period. But that isn’t what makes his short story collection great. What makes Roses are Red, Violets are Stealing Loose Change from my Pockets While I Sleep great is his ability to find that perfect sentence to fuse all of the madness together. “We had to get some coffee in us first,” says the narrator who must deal with an otherworldly invasion of perky people wearing leotards. “Tell me about it, Ben,” says the narrator who only half-listens to the plight of one of our country’s Founding Fathers. Sometimes, the madness makes perfect sense, as in “The Quickest Way to a Man’s Heart is to Turn Left a Pecos and Follow the Roundabout,” in which the narrator begins in a Kix-flavored fit and ends up massacring a story word by word. Whether everything is related or not, you can be sure Paula Abdul won’t be returning any of your calls regardless.
