Review: ‘And Also Sharks’ by Jessica Westhead

“These aren’t exactly funny stories. Except that they are. They are like tripping on the sidewalk in public and then laughing about it even though you cut your knee. Sometimes you can’t help but laugh though, at the sad and strange and wonderful things people think and do. Like getting excited over hotel bathroom soaps. Westhead illuminates all these losers in a way that becomes so situationally sympathetic, you just have to love them, this perfectly weird mixed-bag of reality. Something nice and easy with a scrapbooked sadface for a head.”
