As the grandson of the wealthy inventor of a rectal suppository insect repellent, the painfully foppish and undeservedly pompous Percy Hogsbottom is free to write his supposedly Spenserian sonnets unfettered by financial responsibilities. And yet, life for Percy is not without its problems. Having been raised at his grandfather’s estate with little exposure to the outside world, under the tutelage of the bizarre Mr. Pennywort, Percy not only dresses up and attempts to write like an Elizabethan poet, but speaks (very inaccurately) like one as well. His lack of real-world experience blinds Percy to the sadistic, cheating, gold- digging nature of his “Wyfe,” Lulu, whom he worships as his muse and “Faerie Queene.” During his courtship, Percy is sexually harassed by a gang of bikers, angers a group of rednecks at a bar called the Pig Sty, and watches, obliviously, as Lulu flirts with his grandfather at a family dinner . . . Illustrated by Katrina Hinton-Cooper NC-17
Mark Mandell, Diary of a XX-century Elizabethan Poet
MARK MANDELL had been raised in and usually wrote about South Florida. He first copyrighted Diary of the Twentieth-Century Elizabethan Poet with the Library of Congress in 1999, then, with a couple of exceptions, more or less stuck it on a shelf to collect dust. He wrote everything from short, existentialist vignettes, several of which had been published, to haiku and senryu. Mark had completed his second novel, A Piece of Work, an occasionally humorous yet disturbing peek into the life of a deluded sociopath, and was in the beginning stages of seeking publication for his latest work when he passed away suddenly on March 15, 2010, a month short of his 41st birthday.
This was without a doubt one of the funniest books I’ve read in a long time. It is a takeoff of just about everything, nothing is sacred to the author. It truly takes you out your comfort zone. It is satirical and smutty. — Alex Pope, Goodreads
