The Anomalies

by Joey Goebel
£7.99   paperback  Old Street Publishing (2008)

The Anomalies by Joey Goebel Luster (vocals) wants to be a rock star despite living in the ghetto with his crack-dealing brothers. Eighty-year-old Opal (guitar) is a sex-crazed party machine who has no intention of going into a home just yet. Ember (bass) loathes the world and wants to destroy it, although she's only eight. Iraqi Ray (keyboards) loves America and all of its inhabitants even though he's fought them in the Gulf War. And beautiful Aurora (drums), preacher's daughter and ex-stripper, hates the fact that her wheelchair doesn't stop men objectifying her.
 
Brilliantly written and slightly psychotic, this is storytelling at its most amusing and thought-provoking. Social stereotypes will never seem the same again.

"Wickedly ingenious...Goebel's ebulliently funny writing sparkles off the page. He's created a whole living, breathing world, filled with vividly synpathetic souls, and deliciously evil ones... one of the most interesting and engaging books I've read in a while; a smart, witty, deeply moving parable."
(Boston Globe)
