by Lance ManionHis work has been called demented, hilarious, quirky and well outside the mainstream and with his sixth collection of short stories Manion unapologetically stays with that formula. Big sloshing mixes of poignancy and offensiveness, hope and callousness. He understands that we are all kind and bigoted. Wonderful and pathetic. The human experience is wildly erratic.And he won't pretend otherwise.Having said that, his writing is not for everybody.Do you really want to be everybody?
