Orange Laughter

by Leone Ross

A powerful insight into madness and childhood - and the lack of punctuation works well in this roller-coaster ride through the sewers of New York to the terrifying beauty of North Carolina. This story of a man at war with himself and the dark and desperate struggle between good and evil is memorable and emotionally stirring - wonderful.


I stooped over the child and looked at him for a long time but I felt nothing I wondered if he was garbage I hunkered down a foot away and stared at his body at first he looked like a sack then a mattress torn apart I stretched and I could see his arm and the tilt of his pelvis I stared hard WAS it a child you know the darkness plays with all our minds down here ....
