About the Book:
High above the bustling streets of Dubai, in the world’s tallest and most luxurious skyscraper, reside the gods and goddesses of the modern world. Since they emerged 14 billion years ago from a bus blaring a tune remarkably similar to the Mister Softee jingle, they’ve wreaked mischief and havoc on mankind. Unable to control their jealousies, the gods have splintered into several factions, led by the immortal enemies XOXO, Shanice, La Felina, Fast-Cooking Ali, and Mogul Magoo. Ike Karton, an unemployed butcher from New Jersey, is their current obsession.
Ritualistically recited by a cast of drug-addled bards, THE SUGAR FROSTEDNUTSACK is Ike’s epic story. A raucous tale of gods and men confronting lust,ambition, death, and the eternal verities, it is a wildly fun, wickedly fast gambol through the unmapped corridors of the imagination.

This book is so far out of the realm of my normal reading experience. I read the synopsis and something just said, “read it.” So I did. I still don’t know quite what I read. As I was reading it I wondered if it would have been better appreciated while under the influence of my painkillers. Or lots of alcohol.
I don’t know the answer to that. I wasn’t willing to try.
It is a bizarre book.
I think it is just too far out there for my little mind.
But hey, it’s good to try something different now and then even if you don’t know what you tried.
I don’t suggest this with everything, though.
If you like out there stories this one is for you.
