|About the Book|
I read this chapbook on Wednesday, May 18, 2011, and now, as I write this review on Saturday, May 21, 2011, Im still thinking about Oh No Everything Is Wet Now. Its two prolific authors, Ana C. and Richard Chiem, are young and more or less belong to the desensitized generation about which they write- not that they themselves are similarly bored or constricted to the sort of emotional wandering found within the characters in this chapbook, just that they know such characters well and can probably relate to them easily. Thats quite a bit of assumption on my part, but its how I think that Carrete and Chiem have managed to write so effectively and with so much development. A possibility, at least. And speaking of development, how the authors incorporate the ongoing phenomenon of Internet literature formatting into the novella is truly remarkable, for it makes Oh No Everything Is Wet Now that much more of a powerful and significant read.
