Let me just note for the record, the tagline on the cover for Kevin O’Brien’s “Unspeakable“ reads “Words can’t describe what he does to his victims.”
Given that this book is nothing but words, that does mean the book can’t describe what happens in it?
“I wish I could tell you what happened next, but I can’t, so we’ll just have to skip ahead now.”
“And then, the killer did something. Let me just tell you, it was really bad. I can’t describe how bad, but, like, seriously, really bad.”
Who advertises that they’ve chosen to tell a story in a medium in which they’re incapable of telling it? Maybe next can we get an audiobook of mime?
OK, I’m done. Carry on.
