Monkey Muck, a blog I've followed for quite a long time now, wrote this hilarious post of uncomfortable literary plot summaries.
I particularly like, "The Razor's Edge: Upper class British twit gets sick of drinking and partying and discovers Buddhism" and "The World According to Garp: Wrestling obsessed writer with a one-eyed son befriends transsexual and together they destroy a women's support group."
Surely, readers dear, we can come up with a few uncomfortable literary plot summaries of our own for Chicago-based books and book by Chicago authors, no? Let's hear it. Do your worst!
