In clearly the best debut of 2005 so far, a pissed off teenage midget named Arty screws with his bullying fraternal twin’s mind by hiring a skinhead named Kerouac to come up with a prank so diabolical, it will set their entire school on a mad goose chase for a giant, concrete….turtle. Weird? Yes. Bizarre? Heck ya! One of the most original coming of age stories I’ve ever read? Abso-frickin’-lutely. If you’re into David Sedaris or like-minded writers who pull no punches when dealing with the absurdity of life, you simply cannot afford to miss Funny Little Monkey.
