Dan Fogg is a great writer. It’s a great loss to us that he passed away in 2002, but his amazing Mother has given us the ability to read his words and see the person that he was. Weirder Than Marshmallows takes to heart all the things you wish you could say, but never do. The stories are at times raw and amusing, but the fact that they make you feel is the sign of a good book, plus I love his categories. The Title of the book and the title of these Categories are incredibly humorous.
“Writers write.” It’s a two-word creed spoken by journalists and novelists and screenwriters alike, spoken from all around the world. Writers write, it’s what they do.Not because they want to, though I imagine most of them do. Not because they like to, though I can’t see why they wouldn’t. Writers write because they have to. Writers write because they have no choice.”
There is such a deep sense of honesty in Dan Fogg. Although most of his essays are written to amuse, you can see behind them into the person he must have been. A profound thinker that saw the world realistically and sometimes in ways we want to deny to ourselves that it is; or as an Observer which seems to be what he would have titled it. Weirder Than Marshmallows explores these situations, stupidities and sometimes hard truths in a light hearted manner I think you’ll really enjoy.
