Review of Beyond the Valley of the Apocalypse Donkeys, by Jordan Krall

Beyond the Valley of the Apocalypse DonkeysI picked up a copy of Jordan Krall‘s Beyond the Valley of the Apocalypse Donkeys from Amazon when it was free.

Description from Goodreads:
A nudist colony. A rare film. A donkey-headed woman. A murder. The hummingbird. Explore identity, marriage, madness, and obsession in a phantasmagoric orgy of violence and voyeurism.

Every once in a while I get a hankering for a little bizarro fiction. So, I read one, laugh and repeat, “What the hell am I reading?” All the while wondering if there is some deep theme that is flying over my head or under my notice. Voyeurism, love, identity, art? Beyond the Valley of the Apocalypse Donkeys was a bit like that for me. Most the time it felt like some odd, drug induced trauma and I had no idea what was actually happening. A bunch of crazy people’s craziness seemed to be intersecting in bizarre ways….or there’s a preternatural, killer hummingbird on the loose. Hard to tell. But if you’re into a bit of a mind trip, this ones a lot of fun.
