Pretty Paul Parsons is a self-proclaimed schizophrenic, dyslexic, transsexual with Alzheimer's, who is currently working on a process by which he hopes to cure hemophilia with acupuncture. Pretty Paul likes to spend his spare time at his Heavy Petting Zoo, where he teaches blind children the art of chainsaw sculpture and sending get-well cards to everyone in the obituary column. On this album, Paul answers the age-old question, how many five-pound cement blocks does it take to fully submerge the 40 pound chunk of decomposing nun that he has hidden under his bed?

    " The mills of God grind exceedingly slow but they grind exceedingly fine. One of those stories where you know what's going to happen almost from the start, but you still want to read it all the way to the end. "

    " This is a monster of a novel, and it's been on my "to read" list all of my adult life because it is so highly regarded (on everyone's "best of the 20th Century" list) and so long (850+ pages). I finally picked it up as a book club choice, and while the style and language are a bit dated (written early in the 20th Century), it is a fine read. The story follows the life of a young, poor mid-western boy into adulthood, as he struggles to achieve the financial and social successes of his east coast uncle's family, in the process gradually losing his moral grip and descending into darkness. Much of the tale reads like a well told mystery. The middle portion of the book, which vividly follows his internal debates over which course to choose, and the fear of discovery once he has chosen his course, is simply gripping. The ending is not quite up to the story, but this is still a great read. "

    " It was interesting, yet too long to hold anyone's interest. "

    " I thought this book would never end! At best I look at this one as a period piece. I was fairly disappointed. It was, for me, a 900 page religious tract. I've read others by Dreisler and they tended much more towards social justice and commentery than this work did. "
