Greetings, greetings. Trust you are all well.
We’re getting very excited here at Sigmund Fraud Books about the IMMINENT ARRIVAL of Terrance Gonzo’s Asylum For The Half-Baked,.
Mr Gonzo calls it “a dose of bad luck, half-formed sketches of events, gleaned from people who probably shouldn’t have been there who may even regret ever having had met me.”
But Terrance Gonzo has encountered many troubled people.
Mainly because they, like him, inhabit worlds that straddle the comic, the tragic, the absurd.
It helped that his time at the Asylum for the Half-Baked coincided with so many of them.
In this blackly comic collection of vignettes, snapshots, skewed poetry and straight-up stories Gonzo recounts their tales of doomed romance, unwanted pregnancies, revelations at weddings, damaged political careers, bad taste art, misunderstood chivalry, and how to deal with a fly invasion.
Leaning stylistically on Brautigan and Burroughs, Gonzo’s brutalist writing inhabits the minds of a cast of half-baked people, struggling to impose how they’d like things to be.
It’s dark… It’s funny… It’s pretty out there.
The Asylum for the Half-Baked:
Where heartbreak and brutal comedy go hand in hand
And frailty and longing are greased with gallows humour.
