Fantastic prose, funny, short, plotless.

Riots I have Known is a wicked little novella, that will not be for all tastes. The erudite narrator, sprays words like machine gunfire, as he mulls over the raging riot brewing just outside his barricaded door. He also recounts his childhood and the events that led up to his imprisonment. I can't help but be reminded of David Foster Wallace. For me, it falls short of greatness but I still found plenty to enjoy here.

I listened to this novella while doing a jigsaw puzzle today. It's an odd little book, but I found it very funny - full of black humor and ruminations on writing and art. The narrator is a felon in a prison and the editor of the prison's literary magazine. He tells his story while barricaded in a room during a prison riot. There's really no plot to speak of, but the narrator, depsite his insufferable pretension, is an enjoyable companion and his commentary on prison life and the literary scene is often laugh out loud funny.

This won't be to everyone's taste, but I enjoyed the 3 or so hours spent with it.

A clever concept that could yield enough material for a short story, but as a novella it became nearly unreadable. The reader has no reason to care for the narrator.
