Interesting Read Aug 7, 2008
Reviewed by Carol Hoyer for Reader Views (7/08)
"Trash and Other Litter" is a very interesting read. The author provides humor and insight into the world of those we think less of--strippers and escorts and their seedy lives. The story revolves around Rufus, the bouncer, and five ladies of a gentlemen's club--Roxy, Marina, Sheryl, Lacy and Robbie.
Rufus is having a birthday, and while he doesn't really celebrate it, the ladies he protects invite him out for a night of fun--drinks, dinner and some drugs. How does he end up in a dumpster or near one? How did these women become part of this new and strange adventure? Each lady tells her story of how she got to where she is and what they want to do with their life.
The other parts of this book are the author's writings that include a sci-fi theme, and being a private detective who's looking for someone, but not sure who. I'm not a big fan of sci-fi; however, I did find the reading to be interesting while somewhat confusing.
The final section of "Trash and Other Litter" by Richard Bellush, Jr. includes the author's random musings about topics he finds interesting. The entire book was a very good read that held my interest.
Trashy, but Not Trash May 14, 2008
OK, it's tacky to write a review of one's own book, but there is a little delay getting a brief product description, and the page sorely needs one, so I'll provide at least that.
Trash and Other Litter is actually three smallish books cobbled into one. There are two novellas and a collection of essays.
Trash, the first novella, is a noir mystery of sorts with (I hope) dark humor, best read as a guilty pleasure. A bouncer from a go-go bar awakens injured inside a dumpster and tries to determine how he got there. He assumes it had something to do with the four dancers who took him out for his birthday. His reflections back on the stories they told him earlier in the evening provide the common thread for four separate tales.
After Slog, the second novella, is a sequel to the full length novel Slog, also available on this site -- and, fortunately, with rather nice product descriptions. Slog and After Slog take place after a catastrophic climate change and population collapse when surviving pockets of civilization can be found in high latitudes and altitudes. There are airships, pirates, entrepreneurs, cultists, schemers and adventurers. After Slog stands by itself, but, unsurprisingly, I recommend purchasing Slog, too.
The title of the third section, My Year of Writing Aimlessly, is not entirely accurate. There are quite a few aims evident in a series of short pieces, mostly non-fiction. The essays may please or annoy, but either way perhaps will entertain.
I trust you'll forgive me if I rate this book four stars. That is tacky, too, but that rather goes along with trashy, doesn't it?
