Probation - Tom Mendicino
Tom Mendicino is an author to look out for. His prose puts me in mind of the razor sharp diatribes of Augusten Burroughs, with the tongue in cheek audacity of Douglas Coupland, and this gem of a novel will take pride on my bookshelf, nestled between the greats as something that moved me in a way I can only express in gratitude. Thank you for this book, I will say to the man. Thank you for something real, an addition to the genre that finally caters to the thinking man. Want to feel what a real story reads like? Look to this book and marvel with me at talent, by Tom Mendicino.
