Review: Sorry I Ruined Your Orgy by Bradley Sands

(Review for Bizarro Brigade.)

I really enjoyed this collection of surreal snippets, but SORRY I RUINED YOUR ORGY might fall under the “Advanced Studies” section in the bizarro genre. Casual readers or those dipping their toes into the bizarro waters may be off-put by Bradley Sands’ Dali-esque snapshots of the absurd, at least at first, but with an open mind and a warped sense of humor most readers should find the book a strange but rewarding literary adventure. Most stories barely qualify as flash fiction–some running as short as a single paragraph–so if a particualar piece isn’t too your liking, it’s over quickly, and with a robust table of contents one is certain to find something they enjoy. Reading this book is a lot like being a bee flitting through an otherworldly flower bed.

Sands is a unique voice in the already-singular world of bizarro lit, and SORRY I RUINED YOUR ORGY offers a wide selection of his weird and often humorous talents.
