Synopses & Reviews
"A koanesque romp in style and narrative that starts before you begin. I've never had to decide *how* to read a book. Only whether or not to read it. Carlson excels in character development, which makes the center hold, notwithstanding a blatant post-postmodern style. Full of the bravado easily assigned to male adolescent relationships."
Tag is a double-sided novelette that tells two sides of one memorable weekend in Rosewood, Florida (Population: Oblivious). Poe, a self-proclaimed Studman, becomes stranded when a can of spray paint falls on his beloved car. Big city Poe grapples with local yokels as he searches for the vandal that trapped him there. On the flipside: Mitch, the teen responsible for Poe's predicament, struggles with validation as a spray paint artist in a town where people use toilets as planters. Will these two strangers be high-fiving at the end? You'll have to read it (or buy it and have someone else read it out loud) to find out! Tag has everything that you could possibly want from a novelette: humor, swearing, and brevity! Plus, it's pocket-sized.*
