We Are All Made Of Glue

We Are All Made Of Glue - Marina Lewycka Stopped, page 51.

Not a light touch. The humour of a tractor driver/glue sniffer. I don't mind cartoon characters if they can dance. But these ones start off callous and indifferent to each other from page 1. No idea if the narrator's repetitive, cynical voice is destined to undergo an epiphany. Won't be there when it happens unfortunately.
