What will you discover in this volume of Easily-Distracted Tales? A racist gentleman suffering from Cotard's delusion!

Several references to unpopular songs! An advice column from the afterlife! Less-frequent exclamation points than in this promotional summary! Blood! (A little.) Sex! (Somewhat more.) Rock and roll!

This book perfectly lives up to its name. For anyone who lives with, and enjoys, the conversations so common to college in which a story gets sidetracked by a sudden thought, like that time in Family Guy when they were doing that thing and then suddenly there was a sub-story about someone doing something really funny, and then eventually, maybe, getting back on track, this is for you. The lengths of the stories is perfect to read in one quick sitting, whether in paper form, or as an ebook.
If there are more easily-distracted tales, or even more-easily distracted tales, I will certainly buy them.
