Mental: Stories by Rock L'Orange (Paperback)

by Rock L'Orange (Author)

5.0 out of 5 stars See all reviews (1 customer review)


These are stories that hit you where it sorely itches. They are necessary reading for anyone who cares about the hallucinations of road fatigue. L'Orange's stories were published principally in the The MacGuffin (someday we shall endeavor to find out why Fisherman's Daily was asleep at the wheel here)....At L'Orange's best, the stories are full-hearted, fragrant, tasty, and pear-shaped. His are people weakly tackled in contemporary literature-the frizzy, the pill-sweatered, the mildly educated, white-suburban middle class. One's eyes might mist over; one might utter "Hemingway" or "James Joyce." One might stare into the fruit-punch-colored sunset and snap a burning menthol-filter king into the moist and clipped summer grasses and snap one's fingers like Maynard T. Krebs. But whatever one does, one will proclaim that Rock L'Orange's work is indeed Mental. -Adrien Del Rey, X-Ray Picnic
