A good analysis of the troubled mind of Ray Midge. It's funnier as an audiobook, and don't expect a nice and tidy resolution.

This was funny, yes, in a somewhat dark way, but it is not great and it is far from the funniest I've ever read (the terms some reviewer used, prompting me to try it).

Es hora de leer Dog of the South again. I read this book every year or so. It never fails to make me laugh at Ray Midge and the characters he encounters, Dr. Reo Symes, afraid of going over a cliff in a Mexican bus, and who can resist a guffaw at the Bible quiz Ray must take with Dr. Symes's ancient mother?! Don't piddle away another year before enjoying this treat.
