“I haven’t read much bizarro fiction so I had no idea what to expect when I picked up Gutmouth by Gabino Iglesias. Expectations were shattered as the book was wilder than I could have imagined. Told in first-person, this is a visceral, intense read that grips you by the throat, defying genre and categorization just as much as it scoffs at any attempts at civility. There is a mouth called Philippe growing out of Dedmon’s stomach, a literal “gut mouth,” that poses an odd contrast with his fine tastes and British accent. As strange as that may seem, the world is even more twisted… It is also a parable for the modern man, torn into hundreds of different directions and driven by insatiable hunger and perpetual discontent.”
My review of Gumouth by Gabino Iglesias is live at the LitPub. Thanks Editor Joe Owens!
