"Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish."

I just bought the Kindle and the audiobook versions of David Rakoff's new book. I bought both because I love his vocal performance and I also like to see words. Both preferences are especially true with respect to poetry, and this is a novel in verse.

Amongst the Shiny Objects are Eggs: Each Egg is a Signifier, a Deconstructed Hope Reconstructed and a Possibility. I Am a Deep Blue, with an Astounding Profile. Do Not Ask Me About Crows or Robins. I Like Your Ear Rings.

Couldn't help but notice the tense you used... folks reading your post might get the idea that Rakoff is still with us, which he's not. (I met Rakoff once in Montreal... and his brother, Simon, is a comedian and a Facebook friend.)

The story when he goes to the taxidermist in London is LOL funny.
