Help! A Bear is Eating Me!

07 Jun

“Help!  A Bear is Eating Me!” is a tragic comedy by Mykle Hansen (Eraserhead Press, 129pp).  I just finished this short, weird, humorous book and wanted to share it with you. The back cover kind of says it all…

“Jerk Warning!  Marv Pushkin: is pinned under an SUV somewhere in Alaska…hates Alaska, nature, people, and especially his wife…loves his SUV, his clothes, his money, his drugs, and himself…and is such an asshole…but does he deserve to be eaten by a bear?”

While taking his corporate underlings on a team building exercise to Alaska, Marv gets trapped under his SUV and periodically gets chewed on by a bear.  Hilariously lamenting his money, drugs, and power he attempts and fails to escape the predicament, all the while making the reader just not like him at all.  It’s a quick read, you can finish it in a few hours.  And it’s very darkly funny…  Enjoy!
