DANCER ON THE CEILING - FANTASTIC!! This new book by Mark Nutter is incredibly funny! I found myself actually laughing out loud quite often while reading (which is not a very common thing!) His absurd and dark humor is right up my alley and reminds me of the absurdist comedy of Monty Python. I have read all of his books and I'm always so excited when another one comes out. His characters are so hilarious and the situations he dreams up ... well, I just don't know where they all come from, but his imagination and his comic sensibility are spectacular! I can HIGHLY recommend this book, as well as his other story collections! FABULOUS and FUNNY!! Read more
