WITS Writer Ryan Dilbert will launch the tour for his book, Time Crumbling Like a Wet Cracker (No Record Press), on Thursday, May 19, 2011, 7:30 PM at Kaboom Books, located in the Heights at 3116 Houston Ave.
In a review of Ryan’s book, Jillian Lauren, author of N.Y. Times bestselling memoir Some Girls: My Life in a Harem, writes:
Audrey, a failed tattoo artist with a worthless history degree, just fled an abusive marriage and lost the footrace to the joint bank account. Wallowing in self-pity, and hard up for cash, she hasn’t noticed that things are a little out of sync lately.
Was Benjamin Franklin really hit by a car outside a Taco Bell? Did Segway-riding Huns overrun the East Coast? How did Chevy Chase escape human sacrifice at the hands of the Aztecs, and why are archeologists unearthing Green Bay Packers helmets alongside the bones of neanderthal hunters?
Deep in Wisconsin woods, a deranged scientist is slipping back through time, in a quest to purge recorded history of evil. But this experiment has gone terribly wrong, and somehow it’s now up to Audrey to put things right before the world descends into chaos.
In Time Crumbling like a Wet Cracker, Ryan Dilbert deftly negotiates the surreal twists and turns of a unique time travel adventure. Dilbert is as witty as he is poignant. He exposes the complexities often embedded in our seemingly simple good intentions and allows us to look at the world with a radically titled and thought provoking perspective.
Join Ryan for an evening of fun at Kaboom Books!
