day drunk blues a memoir in g Reviews
Just finished reading this book. Where do I begin... I guess here. Upon reading the first page, the author of Day Drunk Blues: A Memoir in G (C.A. Mullins) successfully rips your mind out of your skull, plays with it in his hands like its some stress ball, uses it as a fetch toy for "Fido" (or is it "Spot"?), and plunks it back in to its unassuming spot in your luckily picked head. From page one, C.A. Mullins takes you on an incredulous journey through the loosely typed stock white typewriter paper that the story is printed on. Starting at the title page, random garbles of letters dispersed all over the page paint the mind of a genius at work and this work of the author's mind craftily plays out over the remaining pages of the book. Blank spaces on the pages invite the reader to create their own version of the book and transform something beautiful into something even more unique (the author encourages you to do so). If I had to describe it, I'd say "It's more of a feeling than a book." Here lies a short book that holds the key to a vast world of imagination and chilling perplexity. Do yourself a favor, get this piece of art. Your mind will thank you later.
Great book for anyone. The sparsity of each story works to its advantage as the book condenses its creativity into delicious bite-sized pieces. I think this best works as a book to kick start your own imagination. Sit down, read a page and let it stir in your head. Maybe think of it as indirect writing prompts? It works for me at least. Would also work great as a coffe table book. Something for people to thumb through in their spare time.
Day Drunk Blues is a psychedelic sex thriller starring your favorite spy, Time Travel, in this 1992 caper about a Monte Carlo gambling event in the eye of a dead jackalope. Thrills, chills, and spills all accompany my special drawer, and BOY does my head-ah cha-cha. Yes, it is I, Crat. I approve of this book. It's good and it's nice, and I think I'm in it somewhere.
Love it! I was confused when I first received the book. I thought someone made a mistake. Once I really read what was inside, I loved it. I felt like a kid again... Destroying it with no guilt. The contents are great and destroying it is so cathartic!
I received this book in a First Reads Giveaway. Honestly, I find the book rather confusing. The copy I received is very hard to read. Many words are dark and blurred. I do not drink alcohol or do drugs and it seemed like it might be a necessity when reading this book. I found some of it trendy and far fetched. I was also recently appalled by the author emailing me directly and attacking my character after giving him my honest opinions and reviews of the book. I have a MA in Fine Art and love creative and inspiring books. This is why I enter so many giveaways. I love to read all different types of books and gain pleasure from keeping an open library in my home for friends and family to borrow from... many writing reviews on post its for me to post or writing from their own Goodreads account. I've never had an author feel the need to belittle a reader because they found the font to be dark and double exposed and hard to read. Ouch. And since I have now been blocked from responding to his rude rant, I will respond in this form. Beware how you review this book. Dear author, from an avid comic book reader and artist, learn how to take a healthly dose of constructive criticism.
Full disclosure: I received a FirstReads copy through Goodreads.com.I am reading still reading this book, but I have enjoyed what I have read so far. Full review forthcoming soon...
