Yet, fleshy narrative makes indexing possible by way of a catalogue of characters who aren’t simply arranged, but rarities that act-largely at great personal risk. From the competitive eater working against an internal clock to a disengaged young man beguiled by an animate voodoo doll, from a junior-high water-walker to an eyebrow arsonist, the affable oddities of The Life Story of a Chilean Sea Blob and Other Matters of Importance confront doubt in its multifarious forms, establishing classification—organized into engaging, compelling, and affecting—as tantamount to the anomalous lives we lead....

    This book has a universe of sights, characters, and places to offer. Carter’s range of voices and style is phenomenal. There’s the moving titular piece, "The Life Story of a Chilean Sea Blob." Then there’s the ultra-weird “Max’s Colossus Proboscis,” a strange and fascinating case of having an overactive sense of smell. And so much more. My favorite is the “The Who Doin’ Doll,” a darkly funny version of “Sredni Vashtar.”
