(from The Hospital for Bad Poets)
This is the title track from Hallman’s upcoming collection. It’s a story, I guess. But I think it would work better as some kind of really out-there late-in-the-show SNL sketch. Which is not to say it’s, like, really funny (or not funny — oh 12:45 SNL). It’s just all premise, and it sticks around a few pages past its welcome.
Man, I haven’t read a story in a while. I’m still embroiled in the increasingly infinite-seeming Infinite Jest.
