I fancied something light to read. Thus, with the persistence and conviction of a precious stone prospector I scoured Amazon for a perfect bound rapture.
Here is the 1st of my prompt new arrivals:
A giggle at myself. The Suicide Shop. Hardly an assumed “Light Read”.
The back cover however, proclaims that this is in fact a quirky black comedy…I am sold!
Here is a random gem:
‘Because of Turing. The inventor commited suicide in an odd way. On the seventh of June 1954, he soaked an apple in a solution of cyanide and placed it on a small table. Next, he painted a picture of it, and then he ate the apple.’
‘It is said that this is the reason why the Apple Macintosh logo depicts an apple with a bite out of it. It’s Alan Turing’s apple.’
I wonder how true this is?
If you are disgusted at my twisted taste…you ought to know that it is just and murky and mucky as you suspect it to be, probably more.
