McSweeney's 18; Haiku Review

I'm continuing to make my way through the 18th issue of McSweeney's. Two good stories have so far followed "The Stepfather," but I do not wish to write full reactions to them. I wish to write haiku reviews. Though not innovated in the pages of Book-Loop, haiku reviews shall certainly here be utilized and enjoyed.

"Somoza's Dream," Daniel Orozco

Sunned intrigue down South;
Exploded bastards betrayed
Deservingly so

"New Boy," Roddy Doyle

Kid's got spunk for sure,
'Cause it's not a simple act
To show big jerks up.
