Reviews - What do customers think about Rumours Of The Grotesque?
Powerful and Intense View of American Culture Apr 29, 2005
I found this book to be riveting because each story takes an aspect of American culture and twists it in weird ways. Bizarre, interesting, and shocking all at once. I couldn't put it down until I read every story. I never heard of Climer until I read this because it was recommended by a friend. Now, I can't wait to read all of his books. A new favorite for me.
