|The stories included in Andrew Hood's sophomore collection are beautiful, gross, funny, and personal. The Cloaca is a train wreck of awesomeness. It's your high school gym coach, drunk and dishing dirt on all the other teachers on the crosstown bus--a stomach-turning spectacle that'll make you laugh out loud now, feel bad later. You won't be able to look away for an instant.
|"Really, these stories are nothing less than shit-hotmiracles from the mind of one of the most inventive,funny, and fearless young writers in Canada." -Lee Henderson, author of The Man Game"From geeky pubescence to the storms of adulthood,Andrew Hood taps emotional aquifers."-The Globe & Mail
