THE LITERARY REVIEW: ... Be warned, Zapinetteīs gems of insouciant wit tend to become infectious. This wise-childīs deceptively worldly innocence takes the entire gamut of human endeavor in its compass. Hardly anyone or anything escapes unscathed. Michael Jackson, Vittorio de Sica, Freddy Mercury, Mao Zedong, Bill and Hill, the Pope, Fidel Castro, and even Jesus of Nazareth all come under Zapinetteīs delightfully zany fire as she zaps from topic to topic in an irrepressible flux. As the century of the double zeros dawns, we have seen the future and the future is sham. As a healthy dose of counter-sham, Zapinette Video should be on every brain-functional personīs reading list. Impatient, impertinent, raucous, and often passionate in her opinions (a trait she obviously inherits from her hot-blooded uncle), Zapinette regales us with words we've never heard before. Like her mother, she's a staunch felinist; she worries about the heather-setchuals who are VIP positive; is freaked out by the Clue Cocks Clan and the android us Michael Jackson; has read about the English playwright Shake'em pears; wishes more people would go see a sigh-kayak-tryst; and can't stand an uppity blue-blood classmate she calls Charlotte de Jerq. With Zapinette, you will discover Paris, Italy, New York and Belgium and have the ride of your life.
