Discovered Bizarro Fiction. Had mind blown.
Bizarro is like:
Franz Kafka meets John Waters
Dr. Suess of the post-apocalypse
Takashi Miike meets William S. Burroughs
Alice in Wonderland for adults
Japanese animation directed by David Lynch
Sex and drugs, but totally not sex and drugs. Unlike a man mistaking his wife for a hat, the wife would actually be that hat. It claims to be more for entertainment rather than literary. I wonder if the absurdist Daniil Kharms would fit inside this strange little genre. He’s certainly not writing weird for the sake of weird.
I should try my hand at writing some. Something poignant without being deeply symbolic, and certainly more shocking instead of ham-fisted.
