    One thought on “Governor of the Homeless”

    1. In Bum Town there are reasons to keep your distance than just the stench, because everything stinks pretty equally That s just a trick A trick of the nose to keep you smell blind to the real soul sharks, perched delicately on the psychic shoreline, exactly where ether meets the meat.There s been a killing in Bum Town, and that means a trial Luckily, Scalia s back from Hell and lookin for work.The judge agreed to put a nickel into the Injustice Jar, an old plastic mayonnaise container that he ch [...]

    2. To me, this novella has a theatrical aura Perhaps it s due to the mention of John Wilkes Booth More likely, it is the layering of plot, characters and costumes which brings to mind the stage Bum Town is a colorful setting, though the colors are peeling and soiled The Governor is a difficult character to pin down, and theories behind his existence extend into regions of evolution and science fiction The residents of Bum Town display a brazen sense of humor that defines their natures As the story [...]

    3. G Arthur Brown writes with the chittering sing song staccato of a filthy street urchin in an accent that might be Cock knee but actually it s something else you should probably recognize but don t due to the plastic dry cleaning bag over his head He tells you all the dark, dirty things you already unconsciously knew and he provokes all the feelings you already subconsciously felt from the very bottom of your vagina Go smoke a CHEMTRAIL and suck me sideways six ways from Saturnalia, but this migh [...]

    4. G Arthur Brown nails it with this one The cover of the book is amazing The story is weird The prose is swift and colorful, yet reads effortlessly There is humor in here, but it s subtle, instead focusing in on the paranoia of the narrator as he tries to piece together the mystery of who killed the Governor of the Homeless, if indeed, the Governor of the Homeless is dead We re in Bum Town, a fully realized cartoonish dystopia the likes of which you d find in a Terry Gilliam film, and the world pr [...]

    5. Weird stories are told within stories within a noir, absurdist birth canal, developing a deep and deeply bizarre mythology we re presented with Arboghasts, with The Problem of Archaeopteryx, with Abortionstein , which I will leave for you to discover yourself you ll find cool, crazy illustrations like these both here and perhaps in dark allies left behind by clue fancying or clue less serial killers, and basically nowhere else, and thus Governor of the Homeless is for fans of the great digressiv [...]

    6. A mysterious, dark and seedy trip Initially, each small chapter feels like a random tangent, but adds a small piece to the puzzle The paranoid narrator, Wilson, and the Governor are all enigmas The reader is left making connections even after reading the stunning ending and putting the book down A strange little brainburner of a book that I will continue to think about.

    7. Early on in Governor of the Homeless, we learn that a man named Wilson is on trial for killing the Governor of the Homeless in the dystopia known as Bum Town, despite the fact that the eponymous governor is alive and well, nay, seated in plain sight in the kangaroo courtroom where the trial takes place The trial was about something else entirely, our narrator informs us, adding, I m writing this book to see if I can figure out what that was Thus we are invited to come along and see if we too mig [...]

    8. G Arthur Brown is a talented writer He s clever, imaginative, and his prose is tight He s put out a few chapbooks and a flash fiction collection since his debut, Kitten, but Governor of the Homeless is only his second book published in print.He reminds me of Kevin L Donihe in that I love his writing, but his books are few and far between It s a blessing and a shame, really I want there to be , but I know authors like Brown and Donihe don t want to rush things and sacrifice quality for quantity.H [...]

    9. Bizarro courtroom noir, reminiscent at times of Philip Jose Farmer s Burroughs vs Burroughs pastiche The Jungle Rot Kid On the Nod, thanks to its rapid fire turns of phrase and captivating strangeness, yet utter commitment to the form Kaleidoscopic weirdness flows unabated, and the imagery washing past is disturbing and psychedelic The text is experiential and striking, but lacking in concrete handholds beyond a few grotesque set pieces Five minutes after finishing this book, and chuckling at it [...]

    10. The Governor that can be spoken is not the eternal Governor.Does that make sense No OK Well, incognito ergo sum.Brown s bizarro Bum Town world has a logic and justice all its own.It s almost like your own subconscious has splattered all over the pavementand been scraped back together by the love child of Bukowski and H.P Lovecraft.But don t worry Actually, on second thought do worry.Suffice to say, there are easier paths to motherhood.My thanks to Psychedelic Horror Press for providing the ARC u [...]

    11. The Governor of the Homeless is the size of a tapas, but it s got striking flavors of big, bold tomes like Infinite Jest 1984 and White Noise This book is smart, sharp, cracked, crazy It smells like the randoms in the alley behind my apartment building digging through the bins, it s ugly like bloody gums, and it s funny like the punchline to your favorite joke.G Arthur Brown hits notes like Orwell, Dom DeLillo and David Foster Wallace, but he has a distinctive and unmistakable, beautiful, goddam [...]

    12. I greatly enjoyed reading this one It s a fast read, a real page turner for sure If I had to classify the genre, I d say Garbage Noir or Tetanus Adventure The prose is lyrical, and gritty The dialogue humps the line between brilliant and absurdity the good kind I used a unopened condom as a bookmark for this book Treat yourself and pick it up for an extended gander.

    13. Myriad narratives spiral out from a central courtroom drama The sum of the parts a portal into the mind of the author, a kind of twisted dream diary, a nightmare of Baudrillard s simulacra, wrought with exquisite detail an art museum with Oscar the Grouch style trashcans forming elephant legs, pieces of car engines composing a startled simulation of a hi fi, old pipe and wire bundled into the hair of pretty garbage ladies G Arthur Brown wrestles with his own internal demons, seeking solace for h [...]

    14. G Arthur Brown is the first author to use the word chortled in a sentence that hasn t made me want to throw the book through a window.Been a decent while since he debuted with the spectacular novella Kitten , and this short novella does not disappoint as a follow up.If you ever wondered what a dystopian court room farce from Terry Gilliam would read like, this is it.

    15. Another G Arthur Brown book, another 5 star rating And frankly I tried to give this one 6 stars but some rules just aren t made to be broken apparently.
