A Trip of GoatsLooking for something entertaining to read at the beach? Or for those long sessions on the Throne? Or to slip behind a Corporate Report cover so you can have a few moments of enlightenment during a boring meeting?

I’ve got just the thing for you. Go getcha a copy of A Trip of Goats, by one Kim Crawford.

Many of my Esteemed Readers are already familiar with Mr. Crawford’s sometimes vitriolic, often amusing prose. And a few are even familiar with Mr. Crawford’s sometimes vitriolic, often amusing behavior. If you’re in either part of that Bloggy Venn diagram, you’ll have some idea of what to expect from A Trip of Goats. And if not, it will be a glorious and perverse surprise.

Having read several early drafts of this, Mr. Crawford’s first novel, I can recommend it without reservations. Well, maybe one reservation. It’s awfully fucking expensive for a 6 x 9" paperback. I guess somebody has to pay for all the smokes and firewater.

Whet your appetite here, where the inimitable Velociman has provided some book-pimpage as well as a wee sample. Then go here and buy the frickin’ thing.

And while you’re at it, you can buy my book too... from the much more user-friendly Amazon website.
