The Transformations, a Tale of Modern Sin
That meme or pop-up or spam - you know the one - it's everywhere on the internet. It urges men to enlarge a certain body part. But really - who or what kind of man would buy into that nonsense? The narrator of "The Transformations," for one. He applies Onan's Enlarging Ointment to himself and promptly turns into a donkey. Our foolish narrator is then raked across a pile of intriguing and entertaining encounters including lockdown at the zoo, bizarre sex, friendship with a drunken elephant, eco-terrorism, semi-slavery by pious religious communards, sea voyages, depraved tourists, drug pirates and other magically or demonically inspired bi-peds. "The Transformations" is an obvious homage to Apuleius' "The Golden Ass" while offering a modern, magical-realist update in vivacious and witty prose. Blue Guitar Press invites you to enjoy Dex Quire's world of wonders and transformations.
