One popsicle please! Sep 3, 2004
Don't miss this red hot title! But I'd recomend reading it with oven mitts so you don't burn your hands! Oooh! And sunglasses! And beer! He's no Yolanda Celbridge, but then, who is?! Joking aside, this guy kicks a$$.
Great collection of memorable stories. Sep 3, 2004
These are beautifully written stories that showcase the author's obvious talent and intelligence. I've read Toutonghi's stories 2 or 3 times and found them more enjoyable and illuminating each time. Highly recommended.
Wonderful, Imaginative Short Stories Feb 17, 2004
This book was a real delight. I have had the pleasure of following the author's career through high school and college and I have to say that this is the best of his work that I have read. The stories have a humanist, philosophical angle, the characters drawn with beautiful language. I recommend taking a chance on this young author since he's due to become a well-known scribe.
