WING DING AT UNCLE TUG'S and other stories
by JEFF GRIMSHAW

"When a complete stranger contacts you over the Internet proferring his book for your reading pleasure, expectations may not run too high. The possibility exists that the author may be a wild-eyed shut-in who smells faintly of Cheetos, with a thousand-page handwritten manuscript about the dewiness of young flesh, or the international conspiracy to control the weather, or something similar. But as it turns out, Jeff Grimshaw has written some cracking stories -- pithy, funny, wry, and observant. (And typed, e ven!) "Good Buddy Tours Inc." and "The Switch" are particularly snickery. While I still have no way of knowing if the author actually does leave the house or emanate snack food aroma of any kind, I'd say his book's definitely worth a read. (And hey -- it's pretty short, so even if you hate it, you'll be done with it before too long.)"
--Bethany J of bgirl.net
"If you know Grimshaw only from edgy stories like Shopping Cart or the Pushcart-nominated Wax, prepare to be surprised. This is a very funny book. Of course humor has always been part of his mix, and even the nightmare surrealism of Trout Mask Movie is leavened with it, but this is straight comedy-- delightful, sunny, and absolutely charming."
--Wm. H Garsi, author of LuAnn in the Dark
"The way a microscope transforms a patch of grime into a bustling madhouse of grotesque lifeforms, Grimshaw succeeds in magnifying the common details of New Jersey youth into keystone comedy capers and cliffhanging adventures. Jean Shepherd's dead -- and Grimshaw's moving in on his turf."
--Irwin Chusid, Author, Songs in the Key of Z: The Curious Universe of Outsider Music
