1 star1 star1 star1 star Adult
These are the stories of the lost and lonely, the alcoholic and the criminal, the deviant and the poor. They are told with a sad absurdist wit that is utterly refreshing. The storytelling is excellent, very conversational and down-to-earth. This is an approachable work that deals with very complex ideas and issues. More

About Michael Kindt

I am a writer living in South Dakota. I have written my whole life, but only seriously these last few years. Giving up conventional notions of career and success, I changed my life and plunged full-time into the world of the starving artist. It was the best decision I’ve ever made. I have had several stories, articles, and poems published, most recently on the Huffington Post, via Tumblr (“Mechanically Separated Chicken,” a short work of sarcasm that was widely misinterpreted and controversial). I have also been published in College Times, Midwest Lit Review, and had a poem included in an anthology called “It’s Dark & Scary In Here.” My writing has been compared to Elmore Leonard, Augusten Burroughs, and David Sedaris, but I don’t know what that means since I have never read any of them. It has also been called “uniquely fucked up” and I know exactly what that means. You will, too.

Review by: fv on April 27, 2011 : star star star star
Excellent stuff, a little on the experimental side. I really enjoyed the absurd sense of humor and satirical tone. The stories are also pretty dark in places. Heads up on graphic sex in one part, and violence and drug and alcohol use throughout if you're offended by that kind of thing. Four stars for being both hilarious and creepy.
