Read full description of the books The Trumpet Of The Swan:This is the funniest shit, I swear. The humor in this book is surreal. The cob has me in stitches with his over-the-top florid speeches, but it's the little details that kill me. Like how nobody goes crazy when a bird learns how to read and write "catastrophe." Or like when Louis spends the night at the Ritz, he goes to take a shower and he draws the curtain. HE DRAWS THE CURTAIN. I'm like, LOUIS, YOU ARE A SWAN. You've been naked since the day you were hatched, and all the millions of times you've bathed, you've never had to draw no curtains and suddenly, when you're alone in a hotel bathroom, you get bashful. HOW DO YOU EVEN KNOW ABOUT CURTAIN-DRAWING. You really have to admire Louis' dedication to his music. How many of you would mutilate your own feet so that you would play an instrument? Well, hopefully none, because humans don't use their feet to play anything except maybe footsie or foot bongo. But Louis is so hardcore, he's like, OH ARE YOU DONE OPERATING WITHOUT ANESTHETICS UPON MY BODY BECAUSE I FELT NO PAIN, SIR, 'TWAS BUT A PRICK.
