Since we’ve got prose for the theme of the past few posts, I figured, instead of the video of the week, we’d have a book of the week. It’s a good thing because, we’ve got just the right book for you courtesy of Hamilton, Ontario band The Rest.
The Cried Wolf Illustrated Novel EP is a novel presented in four parts – each with a track to accompany it, as each part is released every month. I blame my three-month email backlog for not posting this sooner since the online novel has already been available since October. Nonetheless, you won’t be robbed of the joy of expecting the next two parts which will be coming in December and January.
The project is in collaboration with artistIf you’re the type who loves silly and surreal, you’ll definitely enjoy the read.
I’ve read the first two installments and it kind of made me think of that Mighty Boosh episode (most probably because of that desert scene) where Naboo was telling Howard and Vince about the story of Rudi van Disarzio and Spider Dijon . The novel has the same kind of feel, only, instead of silly, kooky Boosh songs, we’ve got the more sophisticated, musically polished sound of The Rest.
I’m rapt in anticipation, patiently waiting for the next few installments now. So, if you haven’t gotten to checking out this wonderful new novel/EP, I suggest you do 🙂
