Do Not Feed the Ism | Review of Typewriters, Bombs, Jellyfish by Tom McCarthy --- Andrew MacDonald | Numéro Cinq
McCarthy’s MC Hammer-Conrad connection speaks to the collection’s willingness to not only grant credence to the highbrow and the lowbrow in equal measure, but is also a call to ignore brow-ness altogether. As a consequence, the more disparate the subject matter McCarthy chooses to splice, the more surprising, and, yes, whimsical, the results end up.
