A second pair of my old shorts. By which I mean they were written back in the halcyon days of grunge and flannel. Way too much flannel. More

All of "Eddie's Shorts" are first rate -- intelligent and surprising, and most importantly, enjoyable. The writing is spot on. I particularly liked "67 Feet in the Air".

Eddie’s Shorts Vol. 2 also has two stories: “67 Feet in the Air” and “Drain Bamage.” In “67 Feet in the Air” we meet a young man called Luke, who lost his twin brother on the 15th of May 9 years prior; today he just wants to spend by himself, sunning on the roof of his apartment building, but is instead talked into traveling to Eagan to fight with with kites. It was well-written and had a great twist to the ending. “Drain Bamage” had me laughing throughout the whole thing - I actually knew people like that when I lived in the Minneapolis area. Having so much snow and darkness so much of the year makes people a little crazy! Jay’s family had just moved to the Minneapolis area from Georgia a month ago, and since it was summer he hadn’t made any school friends. When some of the people with whom he worked at an Old Country Buffet suggested he go fishing with them, he agreed. He also agreed to ride there with Neil – who, as it turns out, is a bit … strange. That fall off the roof left him with drain bamage …

Definitely give Eddie’s Shorts a look-see. There’s some great stuff here!

While "67 Feet in the Air" was a thought-provoking good read, I found "Drain Bamage" to be an absolutely hilarious thrill-ride. Three weeks later and memory of the half-shave STILL makes me giggle.

67 Feet in the Air...At some points a little rambling but stick with it...the ending is a shocker.
Drain Bamage...Weird, that's a really good word for this one. Take a joyride with danger, creepy and mixed emotions. You'll get out...A Little Drain Bamaged, yourself.

Another interesting 2 short storied book by McNally. First story starts out normal and ends up in insanity. The second one was scary and humorous. Little twisty delightful reads. A good "sitting in the doc's office waiting room" read.
