Kings of Infinite Space! [Jan. 12th, 2008|05:57 pm]
Okrzyki, przyjaciel!
Kings Of Infinite Space by James Haynes is not a long read, or a tough read, but it a really funny book about a Fuckup former English Professor who has failed his way down to a temp job with the Texas Department of General Services. While it is written in a breezy, jokey manner, not unlike the comic novels of Christopher Moore, it harks back to Swift and Orwell in the way it uses fable as social criticism. In fact the epigraph is from Orwell, and the McGuffin is decidedly Swiftian.

And it is required reading for Texas State Goverenment workers, like curly and jenerator.
