Crying a single gigantic tear that is the combined tears of never crying and it comes on with the feeling of a sneeze and caves your head in and you feel normal, but not for that long.
Just long enough to know it wasn’t real.

PRAISE FOR SAM PINK
“[Sam Pink is] simply one of the best, darkest, funniest, wildest, and [most] touching writers we’ve got.”—The Los Angeles Review of Books
“Pink has built a large cult following by consistently delivering distinctive novels that break away from traditional storytelling.”—Bookslut
“No matter what he’s writing, Pink’s eye for describing the bizarre daily parade of being a person surrounded by other people and with a brain that won’t turn off is by turns hilarious, self-destructive, surreal, precise, and moving without trying to be moving.”—VICE
“Pink is a keen observer of the culture of minimum-wage jobs and low-rent studio apartments that is the reality of life for all those who don’t find a cog space in today’s hyper-capitalist economy.”—The Guardian
“[Sam Pink’s] keen eye for the surreal within the real, and the unflinching, minutely observed rendering of the narrator’s thoughts, make almost every line unexpected, often absurdly comical or brutal, at times profound, and nearly always true.”—Electric Literature
