    1. Contrary to popular belief, Sam Pink doesn't typically do surreal with his style. I think he makes greater use of irony and solipsism than straight surrealism, although there's certainly no question many scenes from his works are surreal in content.This is, without a doubt, Pink's most surreal work. You have a man issuing ascribing romantic innuendos to a feral cat that bites his foot, someone freezing a bee and then thawing it out with a string tied to it so they can fly it like a kite and thre [...]

    3. Just reprinted by Lazy Fascist Press, although I'm not sure if I should change this listing's info or a new version will pop up by itself. The editor says, "(This) is a re-release of The Self-Esteem Holocaust Comes Home, but it's a pretty major overhaul of the original. There's a new cover, a new play, and the original plays have undergone revisions."

    4. This is by far my favorite Sam Pink book. It appears to be a set of plays, but they aren't really the sorts of things that one can imagine being performed (much as his book of poetry wasn't really poetry). What it seems to be, as always, is a series of abstract and thought provoking questions about life. The players occasionally seem to give some answers, but they may only fit their particular and peculiar set of circumstances. One notes that he repeats the things he sees around himself to make [...]

    5. I don't know how to review this. It was well-written, although the screenplay writing style was hard to get used to. It had some great dialogue although it made little to no sense. It was well-crafted although I didn't like it one bit. There are SO MANY Sam Pink books you should read, but this isn't one of them.

    6. "FEMALE: You will never be aloneLE: [looking at his feet] Stop saying that. It can't be true.They leave the bathroom and enter the female's bedroom. The male turns on the ceilingfan light. The words 'YOU'RE DEAD' are projected on the wall.FEMALE: Hey, what the fuckLE: Yeah, I wrote 'YOU'RE DEAD' on the lightbulb. It took me a few lightbulbs to get it legible. I mean, I didn't really have anything else to do this afternoon.""QNNQR: [looks at smashed fry] Oh me too. Sometimes I want to be a really [...]

    7. FULL REVIEWThe Self-Esteem Holocaust Comes Home is a unique and hilarious collection full of vivid and surreal imagery. While I want to say I like this better than Person, they're two very different types of works, so I can't really compare them like that. Yet they're both recognizable as Pink's voice. I say get both. The more Sam Pink you have in your life, the better.

    8. Terrifyingly detatchedThis boom is almost beyond reviewing, simply because it is so very far out there that there really are no applicable criticisms. That said, I enjoyed everything about each story immensely. I think The Bastards stories were my favorite, because you almost had the chance to get to know them personally, which isn't something we get from the one-off stories in here. Overall, great read if you can stomach it!

    9. Now that I've read all of Sam Pink's books, here is my ordering of them, the order I would suggest people read / buy his work:#1 You Hear Ambulance Sounds and Think They are for You#2 The Self Esteem Holocaust Comes Home#3 Frowns Need Friends Too#4 I Am Going to Clone Myself Then Kill the Clone and Eat It#5 Person

    10. When I first watch this episode of flashforward I thought it was just like the other one I saw. I was wrong. This episode of flash forward is almost as good as my favorite new ps3 game, assassins creed. I only care about popular culture and this is popular culture. When I write stuff, what I mean is, wow, what a powerhouse this book is.

    11. Im finally reading it. So far its really good. I like that its read like a screenplay or read like parts of a play although short plays bc every chapter has different characters. Its well written and the blunt writing keeps me interested

    12. All of Sam Pink is worth reading. It can get heavy. But what perception. Sam Pink is not the usual middle class New Yorker fiction or poetry or whatever. He notices things that don't usually get noticed. Like a more absurdist Bukowski (without the sexism).

    13. I'm giving it three stars for refreshing dialogue and a format that works in its favor. but I will not read anything else by him as many of these were just bad tastes in my mouth and I don't want to encounter that level of it again.

    14. Usually I really like Sam Pink but this one was just a tad bit too surreal for me; Though other readers may enjoy that.

    15. I will review this later. It was really interesting and I have things to say about it but I don't have the time right now.
