Reviews - What do customers think about My Wife and My Dead Wife?

A Funny Book With An Unusual Narrator  Feb 23, 2005
This is an excellent -- and funny -- book with an unusual narrator. He has a quirky voice and a quirky perspective on life, which you come to understand as you reach the 2/3 mark of the book. You will laugh out loud at the same time you feel a great deal of sympathy for the narrator. I look forward to the author's next book.
For the "special" reader  Feb 19, 2005
This story is about Hamilton Ashe, borderline retarded, and his daily struggles. For example (p103),
"One day I'm at work, and 'One O'Clock Jump' is playing on
the radio. It's a Benny goodman song. I'm repairing the
waistband on a pair of slacks for a man named Grimaldi.It's
not as easy as it might seem. First, you have to pin the
waistband, then turn it up and press it. Then you have to
grade the seam to elimainate the bulk. After you've done
that, you have to fold the waistband inside out and trim the
corners. Then you turn it right side out again, clip it and
tuck the seam allowance, then fold the clipped corner under
at an angle. When you 're done with that, you have to pin the
edge in place and stitch in the ditch of the waistline seam.
It's not easy work..."

Ashe doesn't grow, doesn't learn from experience, doesn't get any smarter. It's a dismal, boring, uninteresting tale, unless perhaps you too are "special".
A Thought-Provoking Book  Aug 24, 2004
Hmm. I hadn't heard of this author before, but was taken by the Dr. Seussian-looking title lettering. I ended up being very pleasantly surprised. Putting aside the humor that everyone else has noted -- and, yes, it is laugh-out-loud funny -- the book is actually a meditation on the the truthfulness of fiction. Toward the end of the book, when you realize the narrator may not have told you the truth about his girlfriend as a way to make himself feel better, you find yourself having to reassess everything you've read. And you'll look differently at everything you read in the future. Based on this, I'm going to run out and pick up the author's other novels. His is a very unusual voice that deserves to be heard.
Laugh Out Loud  Aug 16, 2004
I thoroughly enjoyed My Wife and My Dead Wife. After reading The Lochlear Letters I should have expected another humorous perspective on life. The characters were real and full of heart while the storyline remained interesting. I think Mike Kun has a big future as a great author! I look forward to reading his next book.
Contemporary Fiction at Its Best  Aug 6, 2004
That last reviewer not only doesn't know what he's talking about, but a quick look at his profile tells you all you need to know about his vituperative review -- he's a lawyer who's jealous of Kun's legal and writing careers. How sad. Take the word of the other reviewers who loved "The Locklear Letters" and "My Wife and My Dead Wife" -- this is contemporary fiction at its very best. Well-written, yet easy to read. Funny, but not simplistic. Touching, yet not sappy. Kun is the real deal. He needs to quit practicing law and write more books like these. And get a new publicist so people will hear about them!
