This is a line that nicely expresses a tension Comeau can’t resolve: between the angry and the juvenile, the important and the silly. A smart, hip, highly readable author, his writing is adult-oriented but not quite mature.

Synopsis

Combining two novellas into one volume, this collection explores the effects of prejudice and the ramifications of violence with a slightly unhinged sense of humor and unexpected tenderness. Lockpick Pornography, originally published in 2005, is a gender-queer adventure story that was not widely available until now. We All Got It Coming presents the experiences of a young couple dealing with the aftermath of an act of violence. From kidnapping the son of a "family values" politician to violent confrontation, these are characters who fight back.
