Clover is a performance artist. And her Amazon Wish List intimidated the Hell out of me.
All the "wish books" on Clover's list have titles that definitely sound smarter than a 5th grader, much less this redneck homo from public school. Titles that seem to say, "You must be THIS SMART to read this book." Writing so dense that merely skimming page one will cause you to feel as if you've taken three Lunesta, two Ambien, with tequila "in a pear tree."
Titles like "Art and Social Change: A Critical Reader." And "Teaching Community: A Pedagogy of Hope." I couldn't make it through those books. If you want me to read them, just hit me in the head with a two-by-four. It will have the same effect!
So, I chose this book as my gift for Clover: Brief Interviews with Hideous Men.
Because it describes most of my tricks, boyfriends and/or sexual partners.
The paper bag over the head is new. I've never done that to anyone I've slept with. Yet.
