From the Italian Londoner Crugi Smear. His first collection in English. Available as kindle for only $1.23. It’s gothic. It’s zany. It’s bizarro! It’s sometimes a bit like the love child of Borges, Bukowski and Italo Calvino.

It’s crazy!!


SMEAR! Vol I collects ten short stories by Crugi Smear, an independent London-based writer. These stories recount some of the events in the life of Roger Prandelli, a compassionate multi-faceted individual who confronts his own defeats with zany, dark humour, but never despair. The insanity of the modern world is presented with a fast narrative pace that is every bit as deranged and hilarious as a work by Bukowski or Vonnegut.
