Couch by Benjamin Parzybok
Couch, Benjamin Parzybok. Easthampton Mass.: Small Beer Press, 2008. e-book, 284 pps., including preview of second novel.
I like hacker lit the best of all genres but a well-written slacker fic also can amuse me. Couch involves three roommates and a couch. The couch is touched. It dictates where it wishes to go. Some stuff happens and the three guys head out to parts unknown with the couch. The couch has the soul of a gypsy.
sapphoq reviews says: Those who like slacker fic will appreciate this novel. I did. I plan to read the book that was included in part at the end as a preview. Highly recommended.
