Ignore these searing naked tales of a lost America at your own risk These are the brutal images of Her discarded children the marginalized lives they lead and the desperate adults they become They are a warning a protest a scream from the darkness by one of the country's boldest most original young writers Youngstown Ohio's Noah CiceroMichael Allen Grumpy Old Bookman The subject matter is dark and might be depressing but for the author's sense of humour Which is dry droll and succeeded in making me laugh A lot than many books doHarvey Pekar author of American Splendor and The uitter This is a very good homemade book about White Trash America It's full of angry humorous and intelligent insights I read it in one sittingReader of Depressing Books Here's why I liked your novel Burning Babies Because the voice Because of who you are I guess If I like someone's voice then I'll read anything they write because I trust them Subject matter doesn't matter to me I like your voice because you do not explain things that are obviousAbout the Author Noah Cicero was born in 1980 in Youngstown Ohio where he still lives His first book The Human War was published in 2003 by Fugue State Press

    Burning Babies is a Yankee Hotel Foxtrot in how it's been held back but don't think it's got the same acceptability through pleasantries of niceness that Wilco has Burning Babies is harsh but it's grittier than Noah's previous collection The Condemned The Condemned was a wonderful read but there seemed to be this underlining desire for an acceptance within the tales with Burning Babies there is no desire for any hope to be at the end This is a book of wallowing in a rusted cemetery city life much of which has the same backdrop I had growing up in Youngstown Ohio This book is about merely existingAfter all the issues of a publisher putting the release on hold for whatever reason publishers have Noah Cicero has put out a part of Burning Babies onto a print on demand siteThe book is printed in a form larger than writing paper and because of that there is no way to read the book in public without feeling like a madman simply due to the size of it You can't just sit in a coffee shop and tilt your chair back and enjoy If you do that people will come up and ask if you are reading a script or possibly a published police report of a killer never caught Burning Babies is meant to be consumed; the best way I found was the lurch over it as it lays on a table and just go into the world of its storiesIn the last day I have read the final story times that I can remember To call the final story a fuck you would be an understatement The final story is simply a statement from Noah Cicero that he is not settling espically when it comes to pleasing the assholes that somehow live in this world unharmed All I can say is I can't wait for the full book to one day be releasedmy review was originally posted at

    Noah Cicero Burning Babies A Head Publishing 2003I first heard about this book back in 2005 It first popped up on a blog I am uite fond of called Grumpy Old Bookman; soon after Tao Lin started championing Cicero's work in 2006 he called Burning Babies “a beautifully written novel” And thennothing The book didn't actually show up anywhere until 2008 Cicero from his own blog in February 2007 “Once upon a time there was a book called Burning Babies by Noah Cicero that was going to come out but the book did not come outHe got reviews for this book that did not existPeople said positive things concerning the non existent book” I'm still trying to figure out whether he's just noting the facts or making digs at the bloggers who talked the book up not that it really matters Burning Babies does exist I own a copy of it And now I have read itIt's fucking terribleImagine a bastard child of all the worst traints and none of the best of Allen Ginsberg and Todd Moore Carlos Castaneda may have also been involved in some kind of unholy threesome a child whosemother?drank prodigiously and steadily throughout pregnancy and may have smoked some sort of methcrack freebase as well a child as relentlessly horrifically abused as all those kids who it actually turned out weren't as relentlessly horrifically abused as we were told they were JT Leroy Dave Pelzer Augusten Burroughs a child who lacks any sort of formal education in the English language whatsoever has never read a novel and thus had no chance to have picked up even the basics of plot characterization or theme That child is Monco the narrator of this plotless morass of language that may be an attempt at a novel may be some sort of loosely linked story cycle the product description at points to this interpretation though loosely may even be some sort of tremendouly incompetent attempt at poetry; the only way I could give the book than zero stars though was to block that possiblity out of my head entirely Note written after the review was finished it still didn't workThe book is written—perhaps consciously but whether it was the author's intent to come off this way or not the effect is the same—in an aggressively anti literate style Other reviewers who are not as familiar with the world of vanity publishing as I am may not be as familiar with this style of writing as I am but rest assured there is nothing “bold” or “new” or “avant garde” or fill in the superlative of your choice about it Pick up half a dozen random novels the grammatically awkward the titles the better from self vanity or POD publishing houses Dorrance XLibris PublishAmerica AuthorHouse CreateSpace and I'd almost guarantee you will find at least one written in exactly this style Pro tip choose books written by authors with outlandish pseudonyms Well let me revise this paragraph a tad the word “style” has implications I don't mean to impart There is a style to this book in the way there is a style to the scattering of mutilated bodies after a particularly nasty train derailment There is no artfulness to be found here any than there is artfulness in the ravings of the unmedicated schizophrenic haranguing you from the streecorner Come to think of it I'd rather listen to the schizophrenic I had originally given this half a star because despite hating myself every time I turned a page I finished the book rather than abandoning or burning it But the I think about it the I realize it doesn't deserve even that To uote a wiser and much succinct colleague of mine reviewing a different book “I kept thinking 'Why am I reading this?' but that put all the responsibility on me Why is this a book?” zero

    I was beaten brutally by my father several times and I don't think I ever did anything that badHis anger was at the worldAt other peopleAt his employersThey had stolen his lifeHis timeHis workAll stolenI didn't know what his anger was derived from when I was twelve but in my twenty forth year of human existence I'm starting to learn I was confused a lot as a child My parents always said I grow up to workHave health insurance and children But work doesn't bring happiness Just broken backsAngerThe need for drugsBooze And argumentsMy father broke lamps phones plates ant TVs when he got angry
