Review: Shaun Tan’s “What Miscellaneous Abnormality is That?”

by writereaderly

A limited edition book published with the DVD of Shaun Tan’s The Lost Thing. It’s a guide to oddments and quirkified beings. Delightful.

Where it came from: JH’s Bookshelf
Time & manner of reading: Immediately, with delighted guffaws, lying on the lounge room floor of an old sharehouse
Where it went to: Back home
Reminds me of: An amazing art exhibition I saw at the Wollongong City Art Gallery, by Jade Pegler
Who I’d recommend it to: Most anyone with a sly sense of humour
Also reading: The Heart of the Matter by Graham Greene; The Plumed Serpent by D.H. Lawrence; The Reivers by William Faulkner; Moby Dick by Herman Melville; Gone to Earth by Mary Webb
