Book Review: This Body’s Not Big Enough for the Both of Us by Edgar Cantero

Oh. My. Goodness. I LOVE EDGAR CANTERO’S BOOKS!!

Seriously, he has the most incredible imagination. And he pairs that with an impeccable writing style/sense of pacing and comedy AND a seemingly endless (and absolutely brilliant) collection of literary and pop-culture allusions that he sprinkles throughout his stories like marshmallows in Lucky Charms. Honestly, you couldn’t ask for more!

This book brings us the most phenomenally tragically hip protagonist in recent times – A.Z. Kimrean is a marvelous creation and Cantero manages the duality/singularity with aplomb and panache (of course). The tale is wild and unusual and fascinating – as much so as Adrian and Zooey themselves – and I flew through it, skimming pages on my kindle so fast I’m surprised I still have fingerprints.

I know this is a tragically short review for such a phenomenal book, but that’s because I don’t even know where to begin in explaining it without spoilers and I wouldn’t want to ruin an ounce of this read. You need to discover Cantero’s stories on your own, line by line – he is a master storyteller with a genius for imagery and wordplay that is phenomenal.

If you like your stories original, perfectly paced, and with a spot-on sense of the darkly comic absurdity of life, you can do no better than Edgar Cantero.
