I didn't know what to expect reading this book. Short stories are usually very shallow and pointless. This, however, is fantastic. The stories are very deep, and the emotion is raw and true. I think McCutcheon has a great way of describing details clearly using plain language. This was a lot of fun to read.
Entertaining and Touching Aug 3, 2007
When I first saw this short story collection, I wasn't sure whether I as a 32-year-old female was the audience for McCutcheon's writing. As soon as I read the first page, I knew I was wrong. McCutcheon's stories are written with such heart that I found I could relate to his character's ideas and emotions even when I couldn't relate to their situations. I love these stories and often read my favorites over again. McCutcheon's first novel, Burnt Roof of Mouth, also came out recently--it does not disappoint!
Looking for something to read between benders? Read this. May 23, 2006
Has it been more than 8 hours since you've had a drink? Since you've had sex? Well, you'd best get off the internet and go somehwere where you can get both, but first, order this book. If you are, or were, the type of person who's memory of certain evenings is fuzzy, read the stories in Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll, and some of it may come back to you. If you wish you had more of those evenings, read this book, and you'll see what you're missing. Either way, you'll enjoy it. Sobriety not necessary.
McCutcheon: the Antidote to Modern Society Feb 25, 2006
It's good to know that someone growing up in the 1980s wasn't listening to the morality speeches by politicians, priests, and educators. This is emotional stuff and quite worldly and literary in spots. The stories themselves run the whole spectrum of love, sex, death, travel, and are nothing short of completely entertaining. Looking forward to more from Mr. McCutcheon.
It's not you luvvie Feb 17, 2006
Remember that time you had a brilliant time and you told me all about it, and in the telling, it didn't seem all that great? Well, that's because you're not Mr McCutcheon.
