** I’ll Sell You A Dog by Juan Pablo Villalobos

 

I’ll Sell You A Dog is the absurdist story of a writer and retired taco seller, now living in a retirement home and busy fighting cockroaches, his nosy neighbor, and the coterie of the book club that meets in the lobby. The story unfolds in crafty flashbacks with inventive, incongruous details, but the wild originality did not quite go the distance for me.
