Nathaniel Hawthorne is Dating my Girlfriend
Nathaniel Hawthorne is Dating my Girlfriend is a treat of a book! Here are 41 “stories” and comic observations that are a delight to read. They vary in style from the simple to the amusingly innovative, and range in subject matter from the everyday to the positively bizarre. This collection of Michael Fowler’s best work will make you think, will puzzle you, and will entertain you. His quirky sense of humour is engaging and uplifting and his views on life are as individual as his writing is unusual.
At the age of 13, Michael Fowler was reading Mad Magazine and the stories of James Thurber with the same intensity that his peers devoted to Playboy and Hustler, which he also read.
Since the 1980s his humor has enlivened websites both popular and obscure, as well as a lot of magazines with circulations of around 50, many of them now defunct, but still alive in his memory.
Here are 41 of his earliest and greatest hits, including ruminations on why atheists aren’t sexy, what Shakespeare would sound like as a rapper, going shirtless in the summertime, and the size of Jim Morrison’s brain. Readers looking for tips on how to have an orgasm in dance class, kill time during a dull performance evaluation, have a pleasant out-of-body experience, and survive fireworks displays also will not be disappointed.
If you believe that life is ridiculous but still worth the headache, this upbeat but at times dark collection will surely affirm your belief. And have no fear: aside from the title there isn’t a word about that old prig Nathaniel Hawthorne.
